My name is Brian Allen, and I am so excited to serve the students and teachers at Haltom Middle School! This will be my twelfth year in education, but my first year to serve as the Academic 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 and basketball. This will be my 9th 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 Bachelor's degree in Kinesiology and my Master's degree in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies.
I met my wife, Amanda, at our freshman orientation at UT Arlington and have been married for 13 years. We have two amazing children. Our 9 year old daughter, Hayden, who wants to be an equine veterinarian, will begin 4th grade this fall. Our son Joshua is 6 and will start first grade 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:
