Welcome back to the 2020-2021 school year. I am Miss Allen, your 5th grade teacher. 5th grade is one of the most exciting years for elementary students, and despite our current circumstances, 5th grade will be fun and exciting, we just need to have an open-mind a warm spirit.
Miss Allen enjoys reading, cooking/baking, and traveling. I do not watch television often, but when I do I like to binge watch shows on Netflix and Hulu. My favorite picture book of all time is Stone Soup by Marcia Brown and my favorite novel is The Giver by Lois Lowery.

Please note that office hours are times designated to meet with students and parents to address all questions and concerns. All meetings need to be scheduled via email or phone call and they will be held on Teams. Also, you can expect a weekly call from me to check-in on the students and parents. My goal is to make virtual learning as easy as possible.
