Mrs. Allison Boerger

I was born and raised in the Roosevelt Cluster, attending East Terrell Hills Elementary and Krueger Middle School before moving away and attending Madison High School. I attended St. Mary's University for both my bachelor's and master's degrees, and have held positions in writing, editing and design for entities including the San Antonio Express-News, the University of Texas at San Antonio, and Clarke Printing Company, before beginning my teaching career at Madison High School. 

I've been back at home in Rough Rider country for nine years, transferring these experiences into meaningful learning for students enrolled in Newspaper, Yearbook, and Broadcast Production, as well as Journalism I.

My students experience curriculum that is rich in vigor and practical application in the areas of writing, editing, photography and design, challenging them to create portfolio level-work for the Big Stick Newspaper, the Sagamore Yearbook, and various local and statewide competitions.
