Mr. Allen always puts his best foot forward and works tirelessly to make sure that every student of his is learning something new every time they walk into his classroom. If he sees a problem or knows that you are not working to your greatest potential, rather than ignoring the situation, he will work with you to fix the issue. One of the things I think makes Mr. Allen a unique teacher is that he pushes his students to really think about their decisions in every piece of work they produce in his classroom by involving real life situations in every project. When people ask me who has made a lasting impact on my life, my immediate response is Mr. Allen. I will forever be grateful for the lessons and wisdom he has passed down to me.
