Hello and welcome to our class! My name is Ms. Allen and I am going to be your first grade teacher. This will be my first year at Southwood Valley, but my fourth year teaching. I love first grade and all of the exploring, learning, and fun we get to have.
I graduated from Texas A&M University in 2012 and went on to receive my master's degree from the University of North Texas in 2015. Teaching is my passion and I hope to inspire all of my students to aim high and continue their education.
I have a 2 year old son, Kolton. In our spare time, we love swimming, playing at the park, and reading new books. I can't wait to meet all of you and hear about your families.
