My name is Brian Allen, and I am so excited to serve the students and teachers at Haltom Middle School! This will be my eleventh year in education, but my first year to serve as the Literacy Coach on our campus. I began my career in education at Boles Junior High in Arlington ISD where I taught Physical Education and coached. After leaving Boles Junior High, I accepted a teaching position at a small charter school in South Oak Cliff that afforded me the opportunity to teach Math, Science, Health, & Physical Education, as well as coach varsity baseball. This will be my 8th year at Haltom Middle School, and I have loved every moment!
I was born and raised in North Richland Hills, and I graduated from Richland High School. After high school, I attended the University of Texas in Arlington where I received my degree in Kinesiology. I am currently studying for my graduate degree in Educational Leadership.
I met my wife, Amanda, at our freshman orientation at UT Arlington and have been married for 12 years. We have two amazing children. Our 8 year old daughter, Hayden, will begin 3rd grade this fall. She wants to be a veterinarian who specializes in marine life (dolphins specifically). Our son Joshua is 5 and will start kindergarten this year. He wants to be a Navy SEAL when he grows up.
I am looking forward to an amazing school year. If you would like to contact me, my information is below:
