Founder of Anti-Bullying School Leaving Milwaukee


Tina Owen-Moore, founder and lead teacher at Alliance School of Milwaukee, 850 W. Walnut Way, will be leaving the school at the end of the month to pursue a doctoral degree at Harvard University.

Spurred by her childhood experiences of being bullied and from teaching in large Milwaukee high schools where bullying often went unaddressed, Owen-Moore founded the instrumentality charter school — recently named as one of the 41 most innovative in the country — in 2005 with a mission of creating a safe and inclusive environment.

Milwaukee Public Schools spokesman Tony Tagliavia said in a statement, “We are grateful for Ms. Owen-Moore’s efforts to create and develop Alliance School, creating an environment that is truly open and welcoming to all.”
