Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Jennifer Allan

I am originally from Ann Arbor (Huron graduate!) and have taught in a variety of parochial and public school settings in Southeast Michigan.  I love helping middle school students appreciate math and science.  Studies show that interest in these subjects starts to wane in middle school, and I want to play a part in helping students engage in these areas.  

I am very outdoorsy (a former white-water rafting guide) and enjoy backpacking, canoeing and camping.  I also love to travel - at last count, I've been to 35 countries!

My philosophy of education is simple: I believe we should give children the tools they need to learn, and the inspiration they need to become life-long learners.  I try to model these principles for my students every day.  I believe strongly in project-based learning and differentiation, and giving my students exactly what they need to excel academically.
