North Platte High School | English
My name is Jami Allen. I’m originally from Bartley, Nebraska, and graduated in 2000 from Twin Valley High School. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Language Arts Education 7-12 from the University of Nebraska at Kearney, followed by my Master of Arts in English from Fort Hays State University. I'm pursuing my principal certification from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
I’m married to Kris Allen. He’s a North Platte High School graduate and currently works as a diesel mechanic at Plains Equipment. We have two school-age children, who both love learning.
At North Platte High School, I teach senior dual-credit English courses and junior English. The mission of our school is to prepare students to be career and college-ready; since my courses focus on effective communication on multiple levels (writing, speaking, and listening), they benefit students at any level with whatever course their lives might take. I believe it is important students learn for understanding and to improve their quality of life as well as the lives of those around them.
