Brooks School
Grateful to: Teacher

Mr. Allen is the best teacher my child has ever had. He's tough, and has high expectations of his students, but he is also a lot of fun, and always goes those extra miles to prepare them to study independently, to respect each other, to express themselves creatively and academically, and do the best work they can do. My child will never forget Mr. Allen and all the valuables lessons he has taught him.

Mr. Allen has done a Awesome job at the Brooks for my past 11 years there. I am now on my 3rd child with him, and he goes beyond his teaching roles with these children. He works many extra hours each year on 2 plays that the children star in, and also is a committee chair on our Executive Committee. Respect, teamwork, empathy, and kindness are worked on in his class every year. He also teaches them about music, and many of them work together to join classroom bands. Many of these children may start the year not liking some of the children in their class, but by the end of the school year that is changed, and they are all working together as a team, and end up going to middle school as friends. He prepares them for the vigorous schedules, heavy homework load, and peer pressure that middle school brings. When the 5th grade yearbook comes out, and they ask your favorite memory of the Brooks school, almost all of the children in Mr. Allen's class put down being in his play.

Mrs. Fargo shows her love for her students! She sent each of them a personalized postcard while she was away on vacation!
