Head of Lower School
Carla Johansson joins us this year as the new Head of Lower School after having been in education for over 20 years, working in both in the USA and in Sweden. She started her teaching career in Oconee County, South Carolina, after graduating from Clemson University. Two years later, she moved to Helsingborg, Sweden and started working at the International School of Helsingborg, where she remained for 19 years. During her time there, she taught Kindergarten through grade 6, and held the roles of curriculum coordinator and primary school principal. She holds a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education and a Masters degree in Education with a specialization in Educational Leadership. She is also a certified Concept Based Curriculum consultant.
Carla and her husband, Fredrik, have been married for 17 years and have two wonderful children, Mattias and Hayley, both of whom attend Allen. Carla and her family are very excited about the move to Texas, beginning a new adventure together, and joining the Allen Academy community.
