Ms. Shelby Allen
Hi everyone! I am beyond excited to be starting my second year at Trailside! I am the school psychologist for Trailside, so I’ll be working with all grade levels. Feel free to stop by and say “hi!”
I grew up in Western New York in a place where nothing really happens, which is probably why I left. I studied psychology in Albany for my Bachelor’s degree. After that, I moved to Boston to attend Tufts University for graduate school. I earned my Master’s and Educational Specialist degrees in School Psychology.
When I’m not working (or in quarantine), I coach for a swim team in Reston. I also love to travel. I’ve been to Spain, Italy, Poland, Uganda, Mexico, and Canada. When travel is permitted again, I’m planning a trip to Southeast Asia. I am the proud owner/mother of two cats: Stella and Artemis. They’re a handful, but I love them.
I’m looking forward to working with the students, staff, and families at Trailside again this year!
