Mrs. Amy Allen
Mrs. Allen was hired out of college and began her teaching career in a 1:12:1 setting at Persell Middle School which she held for 7 years. She then moved down to a 5th grade co-teach position for 3 years. Mrs. Allen then accepted a position at Love School and taught there for 11 years in a consultant class. When major budget cuts occurred she was transferred back to Persell and has taught again at the 5th grade level in a 15:1 Math setting and a co-teach ELA class for the last 7 years.
Welcome to Mrs. Allen's 5th grade class!
I have been teaching in the Jamestown Public School System for 28 years. If all goes according to plan, I will be retiring in 2021!
Some things about me:
I am married to John Allen who was the former truant officer.
I have a cat named Sadie whom I love and adore.
I enjoy spending time with my family so I travel home (Hamburg) every week to see them and spend time together.
I am at peace when I am on a beach or sitting by a lake. Something about water I find soothing and calming.
I am very good at shopping!!!
I love teaching and getting to spend my days with so many wonderful "Little People"
When I retire I would like to learn some new things like : crocheting, painting, learning a foreign language, playing an instrument etc.
