"It is hard to imagine a teacher who cares more about every child than Mr. Allen. He was born to do this, and sets an example of courage, passion, and integrity that we should all follow."

- Matthew M.

"Mr. Allen is a favorite of parents and students. He always goes the extra mile to help everyone. He always has a smile on his face. He truly embodies what a teacher should be."

- Sarah M.

"Mr. Allen is a fantastic teacher! He is a huge supporter of the kids creativity and comes up with projects that allow their personalities to shine. He has been creative with remote learning and social distancing while still enabling the kids to work in teams. Parents have been able to view presentations via zoom. And most of all, he is tremendously calm, positive and supportive in a time when the kids need that stable influence the most. We appreciate all of the extra time he puts in to make the school year enjoyable, and how he embraces the unique potential of all his students. Mr. Allen is simply the best!"
