Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Michele Barkoot, and I have been the Office Professional at Allen Elementary since 2019; prior to that I worked at Lawton Elementary for almost a year. I am also mom to a former Allen student, and live in the Allen neighborhood. I received my bachelor's degree in International Studies from The University of Michigan - Dearborn (Go Blue!), and worked in IT for 16 years before working in the schools.
In my spare time, I like to travel, visit with family and friends, sing along to most any 80s or 90s song, and watch movies.
