Alison Williams

The Nueva School
Science of Mind, and Equity & Social Justice Associate Teacher
Alison’s educational and professional experience has been focused on social and community empowerment. Earning a degree from Arizona State University, she concentrated in social work and restorative justice practices. Thus far in her career, her work has been dedicated to creating inclusive learning environments within schools, training educators on cultural competency and awareness, and supporting educators in integrating social justice into their teaching practices. Prior to working at Nueva, Alison worked at Planned Parenthood Los Angeles, where she managed their school-based programs and taught   comprehensive sexuality education to both middle school and high school–aged youth throughout Los Angeles County. Her practice is guided by an understanding of intersectionality, systems of oppression, and empathy. She currently is the 7th and 8th grade Social Emotional Learning teacher at Nueva, and has partnered with Kate over the last three years in creating a K-12 scope and sequence for Nueva’s Sexuality Curriculum.
