Mrs. Christy Allen

Hello Wateree Friends!!

     My name is Christy Allen, and I will be your child’s teacher this year.  I am so excited about getting to know you and about working with you and child.  Welcome to a new school year at Wateree Elementary where are "Our Students are BRIGHT!"

     I’d like to tell you a little about myself.   I was born and raised in Lugoff and attended Wateree when it was a middle school and graduated from LEHS in 1992.  I graduated from the University of Phoenix and have a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education.  I have enjoyed working for Kershaw County School District for 16 years.  During those years, I’ve worked in kindergarten, the computer lab, second grade and in 5th for the past three years.  I’ve been married for 27 years to my wonderful husband, Marvin and have two boys, Josh, 23, a recent graduate from USC and Dillon, 22, who is currently a junior at USC.  Go GameCocks!!!  I am also a Zumba instructor and teach classes at the Fitness Zone in Lugoff.    

     Throughout my teaching experiences I have become committed to the importance of parents’ involvement in their child’s education.  I firmly believe that your child receives the best education possible when you and I work as a team.  I will be keeping in touch with you about how your child is progressing in school. Please do the same with me.  I welcome your calls and messages.  Any time you have anything you would like to discuss with me, please call the school office at 438-8018, e-mail me (christy.allen@kcsdschools.net) or message me on DoJo and I will get back with you as soon as possible.  I will see and answer DoJo the fastest.  

     To help your child prepare for class, on the Class Information page, is the supply list you can follow as you shop for school supplies.  This list is different from the “district” list to ensure that your child has exactly what he/she needs.

Improvise, Adapt and Overcome.  Three words that we are living by wholeheartly.  Let's have a wonderful year!!!  I’m looking forward to meeting you soon!
