About Allison Logan; BS-ED, MS
Allison Logan began her career in education over 20 years ago as a music educator in the public schools. She quickly developed collaborations with classroom teachers and developed a curriculum and professional development, using the arts as a strategy for engagement and learning in core curriculum areas. She successfully implemented this curriculum in elementary schools in Bridgeport, CT and in school districts throughout the country. After receiving her Masters in Early Childhood Studies, with a focus on early childhood neuroscience, Allison began on her road to organize, coordinate and create an early care and education continuum in Bridgeport. In June of 2016, she became the Early Childhood Project Manager of the United Way of Coastal Fairfield County for their Bridgeport Prospers, Cradle to Career/ Collective Impact Movement. In this role, Allison is moving forward and managing city-wide implementation plans surrounding home visiting, early care and education and early grade reading. She has been a resident of Southington, CT for 17 years and is a proud parent of a musically talented son, who is currently a junior at Southington High School.
