Hello there! I am Mrs. Allen and I am currently serving as an Instructional Math Coach for Heritage High School -- Go Patriots! I have been teaching mathematics professionally for almost 20 years and loving math for even longer! My experience lies mainly in teaching Algebra 1 (at the middle school level for 14 years, and at HHS for 4 years) although I've been able to dabble a bit in Algebra 2 and Trigonometry. I am passionate about teaching students and really aim to have my class be a warm, safe, and engaging place to learn about mathematics from and with each other.
Personally I am married to a terrific man with two great kids, Joey and Violet, and a cat, Sunny. My favorite things to do outside of work are spending time with my family playing cards or board games (I get super competitive then), reading (although I don't get to that very often), painting, baking pies, and getting away a couple times a year to the beach.
This year at Heritage as a Math Coach I get the extreme pleasure of partnering with our exceptional math teachers as we continue our journey to become even better math educators to our students and help them along the way to fulfilling their Legacy. You can contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
