My name is Christina Allen, and I have been teaching at Mesa High for the past four years.  I teach four sections of American Government and one section of Psychology.  I graduated summa cum laud from Mary Lou Fulton teacher college at ASU in May, 2014.  I enjoy teaching seniors, and helping them to find meaning in submersing themselves in the political world around them.  My ultimate goal for my students is to instill in them a need to know who they are, what they believe in, and to use their voice to stand up for those beliefs.  I have been married for over 20 years, and have five children (two who have graduated from Mesa High).  I feel honored and grateful to work with such wonderful students and an amazing, supportive staff.  I love teaching, and I'm thrilled to have even a small part in inspiring the dreams of those who walk through my classroom door.
