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!

Attention parents of 4-year-olds: Are you interested in your child attending a free preschool program? The NC PreK program is designed to provide 4-year-old children with positive early learning experiences that support their development and prepare them for Kindergarten.
JCPS high schools will host “modified” traditional graduation ceremonies between Wednesday, July 29, 2020 - Saturday, August 1, 2020. Schools will communicate about specific graduation dates and ceremony times as we get closer to see what restrictions may limit our attendance participation.
