Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. George J McAllister II
I'm originally from Plainfield, NJ, however I moved to Florida from the New England area (Cambridge, Massachusetts). Interesting Fact: I graduated (1988) from Cambridge Rindge and Latin High School with a classmate who would eventually go on to win an Academy Award! Basketball Hall of Famer, Pat Ewing, also attended my high school. I have a Bachelor's degree from Berklee College of Music (Boston) and a Master's degree from Full Sail University (Florida). This is my 23rd year within Marion County and my 3rd year at Ocala Springs Elementary. My wife, Dr. Anna Streater-McAllister, Ed.D., is also employed with the district. We're the proud parents of a daughter who's finishing up at the University of North Florida (Swoop!) and a talented 11th grader (son) at West Port High School. I'm looking forward to working with your children as we navigate this virtual learning space together: creating, exploring, and enjoying the many possibilities of musical creativity and expression! I enjoy music, reading, technology, and spending time with my family! Panther Family--"Stay Encouraged, Stay Safe--we will get through this together!"
