Lindsey Allen

My name is Lindsey Allen and I am thrilled to be teaching 1st Grade at FCES this year! This is

my second year teaching at FCES.  I taught 2nd grade for 6 years before I was able to take

some time off to stay home with my children. I have also spent some time teaching Kindergarten and

4th grade.

My husband, Mark, and I have 3 children. We have two girls, who are in 4th grade and

1st grade this year at FCES, and a 4 year old son. We love to camp, travel, hike, and spend

time with our friends and family!

I graduated in 2002 from Calvin College in Grand Rapids, MI, with a degree in Elementary

Education, and minors in Language Arts and Math. My desire as a teacher is to provide my

students with a well-rounded education, encouraging them to reach their full potential. I believe

that it is important to incorporate life skills into the curriculum, while modeling a positive attitude

and making students confident that they can succeed. I believe that every child should be

respected and encouraged to reach their full potential!

I am looking forward to a wonderful year!
