North Platte High School | Math
My name is Jeff Allen, and I teach 8th grade math and Algebra at Adams Middle School. I have a bachelor’s degree in Public Relations from Columbia College Chicago and a master’s degree in education from Roberts Wesleyan College in Rochester, NY.
I grew up in New York and Vermont, moving around often, and I have five younger siblings.
Teaching wasn’t my first career; after college I worked for a guitar company as both a service and artist rep. I also had jobs in music stores, and I worked seasonally for Ben and Jerry’s in an ice cream factory.
My wife, Jessie, and I moved here from Rochester, NY when she got a job at North Platte Community College as an English professor. We have two kids, both currently attending North Platte schools.
I think building relationships with students is the most important aspect to being a good teacher. I look forward to continuing to do this here at NPPSD.
