Academic Background:

What do you love about Allen? I love Allen because of the small class sizes and one-on-one interactions I get with my students. Throughout the year, I am blessed with the opportunity to know my students and their families on a deeper level, which helps me reach them on a personal level in the classroom. The teachers who I interact with on a daily basis are fantastic, and they make work so much fun!
