Ms. Tina L. Allen
B.S. Elementary Education
Hello! My name is Tina Allen. I am currently a second grade teacher at Rehobeth Elementary School. I want to take the opportunity to tell you a little about myself.
I attended Auburn University and Troy State University Dothan, earning a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. Shortly after, I taught at a local alternative school. I am happy for the time that I spent there because it taught me a lot about all types of learning styles, personalities, and how to deal with them all. I gained experiences that I will carry with me throughout my career as well as my personal life. I taught there for three years.
The following year I started as a Title I tutor here at Rehobeth Elementary School. I guess I did a pretty good job because I was offered a position in second grade starting the next school term. That was five years ago, and I have loved every minute of it.
I am of the strong belief that all children are reachable and teachable. Every child can succeed and be the very best that they can, with guidance, patience, and hard work. I have a firm but fair philosophy in my room and have great expectations for the students that are entrusted in my care.
I also believe that the education of our children is a joint effort between the children, the teacher, and their parents/guardians. There is an open door policy in my class; if there is ever a question or concern please feel free to stop by, call, or send a note with your child. I want you to feel comfortable talking to me about your child's progress and ways that we can help them succeed further.
I look forward to teaching your child this year. Teaching has always been my passion. I want to instill a lifelong love of learning in each and every child that I have the honor of teaching. This year is going to be AWESOME!
