If you’re here, that means you hopefully liked my blog and wanted to hear a little more about my story.
My name is LeeAnn Allen and I’ve been teacher in Memphis, TN since Fall 2012. I currently teach Geometry in a charter school.
I used to live in Seattle, WA and graduated from Scripps College in Claremont, CA (outside of LA). My degree is in Biochemistry, so that obviously qualifies me to teach math (jk, no it doesn’t, but I wouldn’t trade math for bio or chem any day). I came to Memphis via the Teach For America program.
I am very passionate about education equity, especially in the United States (although, I obviously would like to see everyone everywhere have equal opportunity and access to a great education). My alma mater is a women’s college so I have a special place in my heart for learning how to encourage and support women’s interest in the various STEM fields.
