Ms. Allenton is thrilled to be our new K5 teacher this year. She has come all the way from Olympia, Washington with her three children and their golden retriever Maya Mango. After serving 15 years on the mission field in orphanages, leading worship and using the arts in community development in the Philippines, Ms. Allenton returned to the U.S. to complete her education and become a certificated teacher. She has had a blast teaching in public and private schools- kindergarten through high school. With a background in special education, bilingual learning and the music/theater, Ms. Allenton strives to create a classroom that promotes engaged, interactive learning.
