Allie Lamar
Assistant Director

Hello, my name is Alexandria Lamar but everyone calls me “Ms. Allie”. I was raised in Gahanna and graduated from Gahanna Lincoln High/Fairfield Career Center in 2010. In 2020, I completed my A.A.S. in Business Management from CSCC and obtained my CDA in Childcare. I began my teaching journey in January 2013 at Sunny Day Academy- Gahanna branch. I started in the EPS room and then followed my class to Preschool.  I taught in the Preschool room at Gahanna for 4 years before transferring to our sister school, The Emilia School, to lead their toddler class. I taught toddlers at Emilia for just short of a year before being promoted to Assistant Director in March of 2020. In January 2021, I had the amazing opportunity to come back to the school that started my teaching career so I had to say “YES”! I don’t have any kiddos of my own yet, but I do have 3 dogs and 1 cat. I love to show my creativity through everything I do- from my fashion to the colors of pens I use. I feel that being creative and learning are two of the most important parts of life. I always want to learn something new!  I cannot wait to get to know all of your families and be a part of your child/ren’s educational journey. I will be working 9am- 6pm. Please let me know if you have any questions.
