Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Jodie Allen

I am excited to teach all History this year at Indy. I studied Magazine Journalism and Anthropology at Syracuse University, and received my teaching certification in English and History from Shenandoah University. I am a career-switcher--I spent over two decades in STEM and medical book publishing as a senior editor and project manager. I grew up between Los Angeles and Washington, DC, and I worked for publishers in New York City and Boston before returning to my mid-Atlantic roots. I love to travel, read, walk, and spend time with my three kids and family. I co-sponsor Indy's Girl Up club.
