Mary Allen
7-12 Language Arts

My name is Mary Allen and I have been teaching at Manson Northwest Webster for 25 years. At one time, they just called me the "utility teacher" because I could teach a variety of subjects. When I first started teaching here, I was in the Special Education department for approximately five years. Next, I taught a variety of subjects in the School Within a School program. I have been in the Language Arts department for the last 15 of my 25 years. 

In my spare time, I like to spend time with my six grandchildren. When I'm not around my grandkids, I like to tend my perennial garden. Believe it or not, I like to read novels of my choice!
