Hi Parents!

My name is Kathy Allen and I am very excited to be your child’s kindergarten teacher this year.  I am thrilled for this opportunity and look forward to a year of learning, fun, and adventure!  I can’t wait to learn all about your child, but first let me tell you a little about me. 

I was born and raised right here near downtown St. Louis.  I have two young adult children, ages 29 and 25, and a dog – Macey Shae.  My philosophy of education is that education should foster the ‘whole’ child.  By this, I mean it should develop character and emotional stability, as well as, academic and social awareness.

I have been teaching for 20 years.  My experiences include teaching children in grades pre-kindergarten through 1st grades.  I was a reading interventionist for 12 years (my favorite!) and have taught children with Autism at Special School District.  I am very passionate about the gift of teaching I have been given!  It brings great joy to my heart when I am able to share in the learning and growth of children.  My hobbies are dance, traveling, and spending time with my family. 

I think it is very important to work together as a classroom family.  We will be spending a lot of time together, so it is important to treat each other with respect, kindness, and compassion.  I look forward to partnering with you for your child’s success and meeting all of you soon!
