Mrs. Allyson Grillo Dillon


Welcome to Room 109! My name is Mrs. Allyson Grillo Dillon and I am 30 years young. This is my fourth year teaching at Washington Montessori. I live with my husband, Luke, and our two dogs, Zoe and Sanka. When I am not teaching little minds, I enjoy cooking, baking, reading, walking my dogs, listening to music, and practicing yoga. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, especially my niece, nephew, and godson. I am thrilled to be your child’s Kindergarten teacher for the 2020-21 school year! 


In 2012, I graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Psychology from Spring Hill College in Mobile, Alabama. In 2017, I graduated from Webster University in Saint Louis, Missouri with a Masters of Art in Teaching and Early Childhood Education. In 2020 I began taking classes at University of Missouri St. Louis for my Master's in Reading K-12 Instruction and plan to complete the program in 2022.
