Degrees and Certifications:
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
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!
