About the Teacher

My name is Mr. Allen 
 
I will be your 7th Grade Texas History teacher. I have been a teacher for the past 10 years and I have three children who are all in Elkhart ISD. My goal as a teacher is to encourage students to become lifelong learners. I have taught many different subjects from Robotics and Math to Science and Coaching, but the subjects that I have always held in high regard are History and Government. I believe that History gives us a true understanding of who we are and our purpose as citizens. It gives us a balance between need and want, protection and freedom, guidance and leadership, and war and compassion. Studying History is not living in the past but understanding it so that we can better shape our future. Texas is unique in many ways and I am excited to share as much as possible about our great state with all of the students here at Elkhart.
