HI ALL!! My name is Christy Allen and I am a 5th grade teacher. I have worked with Kershaw County School District for 14 years now. I worked with kindergarten at Blaney Elementary school for two years until I was given the opportunity to move to Wateree where my children attended, and I have been here ever since. I worked in kindergaten until mid year '13-14 when I was given the opportunity to move to the computer lab. I worked as the computer lab teacher until 2016. During my time in the computer lab, I graduated from the University of Phoenix with my BS in Elelmentary Education. Because I graduated, I was moved to the co-teaching position and now I hold the newest 5th grade postion here at WES. I have enjoyed all of my postions at WES but I am looking forward to and very excited about teaching 5th grade.
On a more personal level, I was born and raised in Kershaw County and went to WES when it was a middle school. WOW!!! I graduated LE High in 1992 and graduated from UOP in December of 2015. I am married to Marvin Allen, the IT Director for Fairfield County, for 24 years now and have two wonderful boys, Joshua who is 19 and Dillon who is 18. Josh and Dillon both attend Central Carolina full time.
I am also a Zumba Instructor, since April 2014, licensed in Basic Zumba, Aqua, Toning and Step, and teach at the Fitness Zone in Lugoff.
