Mrs. Kathleen Allen
Welcome to the 2018-19 school year!
My name is Kathleen Allen, and I am one of the reading specialists here at Falmouth Elementary School. I'm originally from Pittsburgh and am a huge fan of all Pittsburgh teams- go Steelers, Penguins, and Pirates! I received my Bachelor's degree from Penn State University, my Master's degree from the University of Maine, and my Literacy Specialist endorsement from the University of Mary Washington. I was a classroom teacher in Kennebunk, Maine, and Fairfax County, Virginia, before moving to the Fredericksburg area. I have a wonderful husband and three beautiful children. I enjoy traveling, spending time with my family, and READING!
This will be my fifth year as a reading specialist at FES, and I absolutely love being a Falmouth Falcon. It is a privilege to work with your children every day and share my excitement for literacy. My mission is to ignite a love of reading in all of our students and to develop their confidence and competence in literacy. I truly believe we have the most wonderful students, faculty, and school community!
