In this episode, we meet Allie Newcomb. Allie brings many tools into her classroom, including building student relationships, trying new things, and whole brain teaching. Allie has given me ideas, and avenues to explore in my classroom even though they may not work or be perfect, the ability to be flexible and just try has helped grow me as a teacher. Allie is a colleague of mine and teaches in the same hallway two classrooms down. She is the 6th-grade math teacher at Mayfield Middle School in Oklahoma City and we share the same students. Allie has taught at the elementary and middle school levels and gives great perspectives on teaching in both. She received her bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science from the University of Oklahoma and just wrapped up her Master's degree in Secondary Education at the University of Central Oklahoma. Allie is a relationship builder and loves being around her students.
