Jaida Allen

I have been teaching for 21 years, with the last ten years teaching gifted students. I have taught first, second, third and fouth grade, and I enjoy challenging young minds. I believe that children need to learn to solve their own problems, whether it is academic or socially. I help students learn techniques to solve conflicts as well as how to deal with their social emotional needs. I help students understand that failure is the opportunity to learn and to regard it in such a way. We strive to change our fixed mindsets into growth mindsets, and when we do not understand...we say, "I don't understand....yet." This encourages students to keep trying. I have two daughers, Katie age 18 and Courtney age 14.
