I am Allyson Pesek.  This is my third year at Canby Elementary.  I grew up right here in Canby! 
Upon graduation from Canby High School, I attended Augustana College where I received a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education.  I have been teaching now for 10 years. 
My first year of teaching I was a Kindergarten teacher at Westbrook Elementary.  Then I had the privilege of moving back to the Sioux Falls area and taught 2 years at Colman-Egan.  In 2007, I got engaged to my husband Mark and moved back to the Canby area.  I taught 1 year at Deuel Middle School and 4 years at Lakeview in Cottonwood, MN. 
I have had 10 great years of teaching, and I am looking forward to continuing my career in my hometown.

My family consists of my husband, Mark, who is a farmer outside of Canby, and Mya, my daughter, a 4 year old "princess" looking forward to another year she gets to come to “Mommy’s” school. And my technically, inquisitive son, Mak is 1 year.
