Susie Allen

Hello! My name is Susie Allen and I am beginning my 24th year of teaching. I grew up in Columbus, Ohio and as long as I can remember I wanted to be a teacher.

After graduating from Capital University, I taught special education for 10 years in South-Western City Schools. I was fortunate to be able to stay home to raise my boys when they were young. When I returned to teaching, I was a reading specialist and a Response to Intervention (RtI) teacher. This is my eighth year teaching second grade and I love it!

I feel blessed to be a teacher here in Pickerington and am especially grateful that I am part of the Tussing family.

I am looking forward to an exciting year working together with you to educate your child!


M.A. The Ohio State University.
