Mrs. Allen's Language Arts
ABOUT YOUR TEACHER
I have been a teacher for 25 years, and am certified in many areas including English, Speech, Drama, and Reading. I have a Master's degree from the University of Oklahoma and a Bachelor's degree from Oklahoma State University. I've taught at all levels, and in 2018 moved back to Owasso after 16 years of teaching in Europe for the Department of Defense Dependent Schools. I grew up in Owasso, am an Owasso graduate, and my family is still here, so moving back to Oklahoma and being a Ram again is a dream come true! My husband is an Air Force retiree and a History teacher at Owasso High School, and we live in Owasso with our three rescue dogs, and two cats from Hungary. Go Rams!
OUR CLASS GOALS
As your teacher, my top priority is to prepare you for high school using extensive reading and writing opportunities through innovative approaches that will make learning fun and engaging. Almost everything you need for my class can be accessed through this web page and Google Classroom. Most of what we do is done electronically. I am here to assist you and will do my best to help you reach your own personal goals.
This site is VERY BASIC as I have moved most content to Google Classroom. Its purpose is to introduce you to our classroom, to help you get started with Google Classroom, see a supply list, and provide you with some web links we will be needing throughout the year. I recommend placing a shortcut on your phone or other devices so you can access this page with one click. We will utilize Google Classroom most of the time. Google classroom codes will be given out the first full week of school. Parents should also download the app and join our classroom as a parent if they want to get notifications. In order to do this, you must email me and put your child's hour and name in the subject line. In the body of the email, just write "add me". This will add you to all classes that use Google Classroom. You will not have to do this again.
Daily Assignments are posted online in Google Classroom. If you miss a day of class, it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to check Classroom and complete your quote connection for the day. Most handouts will be posted for that day.
