Professional biography

Allison Zmuda is a longstanding education consultant focused on curriculum development with an emphasis on personalized learning. Allison began as a public high school teacher in Newtown, Connecticut, where her passion for her students and innovative spirit inspired the writing of her first book: The Competent Classroom (2001). She made the transition from classroom to consultant in 2002 with a handful of long-term clients (PK-12) on multi-year projects to support learning as defined by school and community goals. Based on her collaborations with schools and colleagues from around the world, she has gone on to write 11 more books including Streamlining the Curriculum (2023), co-authored by Heidi Hayes Jacobs. She also was named as a co-director for the Institute for Habits of Mind in 2022 and works closely with Bena Kallick and Art Costa.
