Mrs. Allen has been living and teaching in Chicago since 2008. She taught as a diverse learners’ teacher for five years. This is her fifth year teaching the first grade in CPS and her fifth year at Pulaski. Mrs. Allen’s love for teaching began while managing a daycare center in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala upon her graduation from Miami University in 2006.
Aside from teaching, Mrs. Allen loves to travel and has made it a life long goal to travel to a new country in the world and/or city in the U.S. every year.
Besides travel, you can catch her on the 606 running before school or after school with the Pulaski Cross Country or Track and Field Team. Also, you may see her at some of Chicago’s favorite races. Make sure you say hi!
