Mrs. Carrie Allen

I have been teaching for 18 years.  17 years in first grade and 1 year in second grade...all in Richfield.  

I received a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from the University of Wisconsin River Falls.  I went on to get a Masters in Elementary Education and a STEM Certification from St. Catherine University.  

I live in Rosemount with my husband, John, and two sons, Jacob and Bryson. When not at school, I enjoy reading, online scrapbooking, spending time with my family, traveling and I enjoy exercising and have completed several half marathons and 1 full marathon!  I spend many hours at soccer fields and ice rinks.
