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 graduated from the University of Phoenix and have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. I have worked with Kershaw County School District for 16 years now. During that time, I worked in kindergarten, the computer lab, 2nd grade and now I'm in 5th grade and I love it.
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 26 years now and have two wonderful boys, Joshua who is 22 and Dillon who is 21. Josh and Dillon both are students at USC. Go GameCocks!!!
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.
Throughout my teaching experiences I have become committed to the importance of parents' involvement in your child's education. I firmly believe that your child will receive the best possible education possible when I work with you as a team.
Improvise, Adapt and Overcome. Three words that we are living by wholeheartly. Let's have a wonderful year!!!
