Meet the Teacher

I am Allyson Pesek.  This is my seventh year at Canby Elementary.  I grew up right here in Canby! 
Upon graduation from Canby High School, I attended Augustana University where I received a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education.  I have been teaching now for 15 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 15 great years of teaching, and I love the opportunity to continue my career in my hometown.

My family consists of my husband, Mark, who is a farmer outside of Canby, and Mya, my daughter, a student who loves that she she gets to come to “Mommy’s” school. And my technically, inquisitive son, Mak.
