Mrs. Christy Allen
Hello Wateree Friend!!
My name is Christy Allen and I am your child's 5th grade teacher. I am super excited about working alone side of you and your child to make their last year in elementary school a great success.
I have worked with Kershaw County School District for 15 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 kindergarten 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 Elementary Education. Because I graduated, I was moved to a co-teaching position in 2nd grade and now I hold a 5th grade position here at WES. I have enjoyed all of my positions at WES but I am looking forward to and very excited about teaching 5th grade again.
On a more personal level, I was born and raised in Kershaw County and went to WES when it was a middle school. WOW how time flies! 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 25 years now and have two wonderful boys, Joshua who is 20 and Dillon who is 19. Josh is a student at USC and Dillon is a student at Central Carolina.
I am also a Zumba Instructor, licensed since April 2014 in Basic Zumba 1 (B1) and Basic Zumba 2 (B2), Aqua, Toning and Step. I teach Zumba at the Fitness Zone in Lugoff 3 days a week.
I look forward to a rewarding and challenging year.
