    A little about Mrs. Alven…

     
     

       I have wanted to be a teacher since I was in second grade when I would beg my mom to take me to the “teacher” store. Fortunately, I had my younger brother and sister to fill the role of students when I wanted to play school at home. I graduated from Rowan University in 2009 with my Bachelors in English and Elementary Education. I have been at Allen since 2011 and I’m very excited to be teaching First Grade.  I enjoy watching students grow throughout the year and I look forward to an amazing new school year!

       When I'm not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband, friends, and family, shopping, and traveling. I traveled to Florence, Venice (Yes, I rode in a gondola!), Tuscany, and Paris (The Eiffel Tower has 462 steps to climb!). I absolutely love bright colors, especially hot pink. Like many people, my day would not be complete without a cup of coffee! The summer months are my absolute favorite time of the year. I am an LBI regular where I soak up the sun, read, and relax.
