About Ali Lyman
Our Director of Admissions, Ali Lyman, brings over 10 years of experience working at The Fay School. Ali is a native Houstonian who attended Houston-area private schools prior to graduating from Southern Methodist University with a B.A. in Psychology and as a member of the Teacher Certification Education Program. An underlying theme surfacing throughout every phase of Ali’s career is her passion for working with Fay students. Whether it is in the classroom or on the administrative team, Ali loves witnessing Fay students transform into leaders laying the foundation for a lifetime of success.
As Director of Admissions, Ali looks forward to building relationships with prospective families and reinforcing with them all the elements that make The Fay School one of the premier elementary schools in Houston. Ali hopes to adopt an individualized approach to the admissions process with each family that is based on communication, relationships, and transparency.
As an educator, Ali never turns down a teachable moment. It is this attitude that gives us confidence that as Director of Admissions Ali will provide prospective families “teachable moments” by articulating how specific classroom activities performed in our Fay classrooms will reinforce Fay’s core values, Leadership Development Program, and curriculum.
When she is not being Fay’s ambassador, Ali values time with her family, close friends, and her dog. Ali enjoys staying active, spending most of her free time in Colorado. As an under-the-radar Houston foodie, she welcomes all restaurant recommendations and will likely have a suggestion for you to try too! When we asked Ali for a quote that inspires her:
“Find something you are passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it.” -Julia Child
We pleased that Ali has found a passion for Fay!
