Welcome to Ms. Allen's 4th grade class website! Let's begin this adventure together!
I am so excited to work with you and your child! It’s going to be a year full of fun, learning, and lots of adventures and I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for us! I thought you might like to know a little bit about me.
This is my eleventh year teaching here at McGee’s Crossroads Elementary School. I have lived in Johnston County most of my life. I attended South Johnston High School and graduated from Lees-McRae College in 2007. I was then able to study abroad in Costa Rica and Italy, as well as work in Washington, D.C. In addition to my travels I earned my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction in 2010.
It is my mission to instill a love for learning in my students. I attempt to teach with a passion for my subjects so that my students develop a desire to become lifelong learners. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. It is so important to keep communication open between us. I look forward to a great year together!
