Degrees and Certifications:

Miss Strauss


My name is Ally Strauss and this will be my second year teaching here at Stateside! I grew up in New Jersey and I attended Montclair State University for my undergraduate career. I obtainied my bachelors of science in Child Advocacy and Policy with a minor in Social Work and a minor in Pre Law. Upon completion of my undergraduate career, I decided that in order to truly make a difference in the lives of young children, I needed to be face to face working closley with them everyday. In January of 2018, I moved to Wilmington, North Carolina and began my journey in graduate school. I graduated from UNCW in May of 2019 with a masters of arts in Elementary Education. Upon completion of my masters degree, I moved to Onslow County and began my career as a 1st grade teacher at Stateside!

I have a 9 month old daughter who I was blessed to be home with and watch grow these past months. We have spent our time swimming at Aspyns "mimi's" house, watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, reading Dr Suess books and flourishing into who each of us are supposed to be. However, I am so beyond excited to be back in the classroom and begin this journey with your child! 

We are in this together! #PatriotStrong
