A LOT HAS CHANGED FOR ALLISON WALKER née MacAdam (BA ’01, BEd ’02) since she posed in her cap and gown with her then fiancé, now husband, in front of Vari Hall in 2002. Today, as a full-time elementary school teacher in eastern Ontario and a busy mom of three, she looks back fondly on her time at York University. “I always loved working with kids, so teaching was a natural fit for me,” she says. “I came to York through a program with Seneca College, and I got through the courses thanks to lots of late-night study sessions with my classmates, some of whom I still keep in touch with. York’s Faculty of Education helped prepare me for the real world as much as possible, and I landed my first job right after graduation. Now, after 15 years of teaching, I still think about the people I met and the lessons I learned there.”
