About Mrs. Allen

I am so excited to be starting my 10th year of teaching, but even more excited that this will be my third year at Dutch Fork Middle School!

I attended the University of Tennessee (GO VOLS!) and received my Bachelor's degree in Psychology with minors in Middle School Education and Business as well as my Master's degree in Education. I also attended Lincoln Memorial University where I received my Educational Specialist Degree with a focus in Instructional Leadership.

Some fun facts about me :)
I am the oldest of 8. My favorite color is teal. I absolutely have to have my coffee in the morning during the school year.
I got married this past December (to a USC Gamecock Fan) ;)

I have taught 7th grade Social Studies, 6th grade Math and 7th grade Math/Pre-Algebra. I am excited to be returning to 7th grade Social Studies, which is where I began my teaching career. I am looking forward to helping students gain a love for World Geography!

My teaching philosophy is very simple. My goal is for students to become responsible, resourceful, and respectful citizens who have a love of learning!

I am so excited to get to know each and every one of you!

Here’s to a great year! - Mrs. Allen
