• 2015-2016 is my 13th year at Mt. Tabor. I have coached basketball for 8 years, but am taking a break to have some family time. I graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill with a BA in Biology, and received my Master's Degree in Education from Wake Forest. I am married to Rodney Allen, an English teacher at Reynolds HS, have 3 kids, Lizzie Grace, Liam, and Connor, and a black, flat-coated retriever named Belle. I love to play with my kids, read, and watch tv and movies. The natural world really excites me and I hope to share that excitement with you! There is so much that we do not know and I want to encourage you to become life long learners.

    I am looking forward to providing you with an environment that facilitates your learning about the biological world around you. As we do this we should also meet your graduation requirement of passing Biology and my personal goal for you to make at least a Level 4 on your EOC.
