Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Leah Allen

Hello! My name is Leah Allen (she/her). I will be teaching IB Literature, World Literature, and African-American Literature this year at Metro.

I grew up in Southern Missouri and graduated from Jackson High School. After high school, I attended Southeast Missouri State University, where I majored in literature and minored in publishing. A few years later, I returned to college and got my teaching certification from the University of Texas at Tyler.

When I have free time, I like to spend it with my husband and our two dogs, Finn and Patsy. I love spending time at home doing all things domestic, but also have a passion for the outdoors.

My last ten years have been a bit nomadic, so it feels wonderful to be back home.

I am beyond thrilled to be part of the Metro family, and I can’t wait to meet my new students.
