Hello! My name is Dee Dee Allan and I teach fourth grade. I feel so blessed to have this job because teaching is my passion! I grew up in Minnesota and received my bachelors from The College of St. Benedict/St. John's University. I moved to Colorado in 2005 for a 4th grade teaching job. I've taught 4th grade, Kindergarten, and I've had the opportunity to be a substitute teacher at Prairie Hills Elementary. I feel so grateful to be a part of such an excellent school and community! I love working with children and my goal is to help each child be the best person they can be. I strive to create a classroom of lifelong learners who not only feel passionate about learning, but about life.
When I'm not teaching I love spending time with my husband, Curtis and my two wonderful children, Summer and Noah. Summer is in Mrs. Stone's 3rd grade class and Noah is in Mrs. Clouse's 1st grade class. We love reading, camping, hiking, boating, snowboarding, and anything outdoors! I am looking forward to an amazing year at Prairie Hills. Go Meadowlarks!
