Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Shenita Allen
The youngest of three girls, wife and mother, I am a native of Tuscaloosa, Alabama. My childhood education was completed in the Tuscaloosa City School System. As a child, I aspired to become a teacher. I desired to be involved in a professional field that would afford me the opportunity to positively impact the lives of others. After graduating high school, I attended the University of Alabama (Roll Tide!!) and acquired a BS and MA in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. Cottondale Elementary School's faculty and staff have been my extended family since January of 1998. I could not ask to be associated with a more dedicated and supportive group of educators.
My husband, Cyrus, and I have been married for 20 years. Our only child, CJ, is a student at the University of Alabama. He fills our lives with so much joy. My family is the center of my world!
We Care, Lead, Inspire, Motivate, and Believe so that together we all Succeed.
