7C Math 2017-2018
Dear Parent,
     Thank you for you child. I am excited and honored to have the pleasure of working with you and your child this year. We will have fun learning math and we will sprinkle in some life skills and critical thinking along the way.  When I give homework it should not take more than an hour tops and should be closer to 30 minutes. I usually give them time to start their homework in class, some students may even finish.  If there is anything I can do for you or your child please email me anytime. Thank you again and I look forward to an amazing year.
About Me:
My name is Maranda Allen. I was born in Toledo, Ohio in 1985. I moved to Tennessee in the summer of 1999, immediately preceding my 8th grade year.  Following graduation from Oakland High School in 2004, I joined the Army Reserves and started at MTSU in 2008.  I also married my amazing husband Charles Allen that same year.  Graduation day was December 14, 2013.  I was fortunate enough to be offered a job at the best school in the country and I look forward to many years here at Blackman Middle School. ‚Äč
