Allie Thrall joined Kirby Hall School in 2019. As a history teacher she aims to prepare students to deliberate on important social issues of the past, present and future.
Allie holds a BA in Global Studies and Spanish Literature from Lehigh University, where she built a deep commitment to combating the many societal inequities we see today. After college, she spent several years working in the Rio Grande Valley and then at Stanford Law School to provide pro bono legal aid to immigrants facing deportation. After deciding to branch out from the legal field, Allie spent two years teaching 4th grade in the Bay Area. This experience showed her the profound impact that social studies education can have in creating motivated, critical, and civically active youth.
Allie received her MA in Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Texas at Austin. After staying home for a year with her baby, Allie is eager to get back into the classroom to continue learning about the world with Kirby Hall students!
