Myra Allen
I am a retired teacher who decided to return to work because I Love Teaching. It is truly one of the most rewarding careers. I find the greatest pleasure in feeling that I am making a difference in someone's life. My motto is," If I Can Help Somebody As I Pass Along, then My Living Shall Not Be in Vain."  I Love working with our youth and watching them learn.
