My name is Allison Decker and I am very excited to be a part of the GCPS community. I moved to the Western Maryland area in 2020, and I am thrilled to be teaching First Grade at Broad Ford Elementary. I graduated from Frostburg State University with my Bachelor's in Early Childhood/Elementary Education. In my free time, I enjoy exploring the outdoors and spending time with friends and family.
