Mr Allen Science

Tutoring: Mondays, from 2:30 to 3:30pm

About Me

My name is Mr. Allen and I have been living in Menifee for fifteen years! I am very excited to be returning to teach at Santa Rosa Academy as one of your middle school science teachers!

I graduated from UC Santa Barbara in 1996 with my Bachelors degree and I have my Masters degree in Educational Technology.

I haven't always been a teacher; I was a store manager for big retail companies like Toys R' Us and Target before I became a teacher. I became a teacher because I truly enjoy working with young people and seeing them develop into high performing individuals!

I have been married for 21 years to my wonderful wife and we have three beautiful girls, aged 19, 17, and 15! To the left, you will find a photo of my daughters!

I truly look forward to getting to know each and every one of you this year! We are going to learn a lot and take part in a lot of exciting and interesting activities. I welcome any questions you or your parents may have and can be reached at jallen@sra.mn
