Gail Allshouse

Lakota Local Schools
Mrs. Gail Allshouse joined Lebanon City Schools as a 5th grade teacher in 1996 and then moved to Lakota Local Schools in 1999 and has served Lakota students ever since. Gail began her career in Lakota as a Reading Specialist and has moved on to work as an Assistant Principal and Principal in various buildings within Lakota. Gail has been the Principal of VanGorden Elementary School for the last six years.
Gail grew up in Michigan graduating from Grass Lake High School. She received her undergraduate degree in Elementary Education from Saint Leo University in Florida. Gail went on to earn two master’s degrees from Miami University with one master’s degree in administration and the other with literacy background. She is passionate about struggling readers, especially the intermediate grade strugglers, and believes that personalizing instruction and teaching approaches will not only build reading skills but instill self-confidence after years of frustration.
Gail views collaboration, personalization, risk-taking, and trust essential for a solid learning environment for staff and students. This environment allows teachers to know students’ learning styles, needs, and levels of engagement.
