Welcome to 5th grade at Sakai Intermediate School! You will be on the Allee/Vroom team this year. You will begin each day in Ms. Allee's homeroom. She will also teach you Language Arts and Social Studies. Mrs. Vroom will be teaching Math and Science.
Ms. Allee has been teaching for 28 years in three different states - California, Texas, and Washington - all grades 3-8. She holds degrees in Anthropology and Early Childhood and Elementary Education. Her goals for her students are for them to become enthusiastic life-long learners, using well-developed organizational, creative, and problem-solving skills. She also hopes they will discover and develop their highest inner selves so they can live meaningful, fulfilling lives with passion and compassion.
Ms. Allee's favorite out-of-school activities include reading, listening to music, hiking, going to the beach, traveling (especially road trips to national parks and wilderness areas), walking and playing with her dog (a mini-Schnauzer named Lena), practicing Yoga and Qigong, and spending time with friends and family (three daughters and six grandchildren). Ms. Allee is looking forward to meeting all of her new students very soon!
