Mrs. Karen Allen

This is my 24th year teaching at Hillcrest Elementary School! I spent 20 years as a 3rd grade teacher and this is my 4th year as an interventionist. I'm excited to begin another great year! I am originally from upstate NY but moved to NC to teach. I met my husband here and we have 2 boys, Will and Bryce! My boys and I were able to spend most of the summer at Canandaigua Lake in NY with my family.
We are going to be working hard and learning lots throughout the year!  It is going to be an exciting year at Hillcrest!
