Ms. Donna Allen

Hola/Bonjour!  As a native of Memphis, Tennessee, I am excited about joining the Overton Wolverines this year as an Honors Spanish I & II teacher and World Language Department Chair.  Inspired by my own journey learning Spanish, which began at the age of 14, I now hold master's degrees in both Romance Languages (including Spanish, French and Portuguese) and in Teaching.  My love of languages and cultures has taken me around the world to Guatemala, Jordan, Mexico, France, Brazil, Cuba and Martinique.  I have been teaching high school Spanish full time for eight years and have over ten years of overall teaching experience.  I have a passion for education and love inspiring my students to be the best they can be!  I'm looking forward to an excellent year of learning in 2022/2023!


Best way to reach me: Email (or text; however, I do not use my cell phone while teaching)

The best time to meet with me in person is directly after school.  Email or text to schedule a time.
