Innovative Teacher


2022 Innovative Teach of the Year

Allison Larsen

She built the plane while flying it. That's how Cuyuna Range Elementary School Principal Kurt Becker describes Allison Larsen. Formerly a fifth grade teacher and a technology coach, Larsen worked as the school's technology and innovation teacher for the last five years, essentially building a science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics, or STEAM program from the ground up.

Larsen works with students in kindergarten through sixth grade, implementing elements of STEAM into their every-day education. And she does it so well she won the 2022 Innovative Teacher of the Year award from Innovative Schools Project.
