My name is Mrs. Allen and welcome to my page! This is only my 3rd year as the School Psychologist for Alternative Education (Sierra Vista and Frontier High School) and hard to believe, my 25th year in the profession! I have a huge heart and dedication to our students and families. My everyday role is working with students, families, teachers, counselors, and administrators in supporting students’ ability to learn. Teens face challenges from time to time that impact learning such as managing emotions, social relationships, and making tough decisions. There are many factors that may affect how a student progresses academically, socially, behaviorally and emotionally. Primarily, I work closely with staff and families to support students with unique learning needs that requiring special education services to make educational progress.
If your child is a general education student (not receiving any special education services), and you are concerned he/she may require additional supports or interventions at school, please contact his/her school counselor.
What advice would I give to my "High School Self"?:
Believe in YOU! Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. LEARN from your mistakes. Most important - Never give up!
