Founder & editor: No Time For Flash Cards
Allison McDonald is a preschool teacher and the mom behind the popular early education website No Time For Flash Cards. Reading, especially helping lay the groundwork for learning to read, has been a passion of Allison’s for many years. While studying elementary education at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, Ontario, she worked as a reading tutor and volunteered with Pioneer College as a buddy reader for underprivileged children. Once she started her teaching career, she fell even more in love with getting children excited about learning to read through hands-on activities. When she paused her teaching career to start her own family, she started her website No Time For Flash Cards, and over the next many years, filled it with hands-on activities to help parents and teachers.
Allison began writing Raise a Reader blog on Scholastic Parents with Amy in 2012. Now that she is back in a classroom she is eager to have a chance to help even more children fall in love with books.
