Allie Leach teaches English 10, English 11, and a Dance Elective. Allie received her BA
in English, Creative Writing, and a Minor in Spanish from Butler University in 2007.
From 2008 to 2009, she taught English in Michoacan, Mexico. Afterwards, she worked
for AmeriCorps for a year in Denver, Colorado, and completed an MFA in Nonfiction
Writing from The University of Arizona in 2011. Since then, she’s worked at The Poetry
Center in their Events and Education Programming, and as an English teacher at BASIS
Oro Valley and The Kino School. She loves assignments that allow her students to be
creative, giving them options to show each of their unique personalities and
perspectives. She’s thrilled to work for a school where she can focus more on
project-based learning and get the students out-and-about, involved in the community.
Allie is completing her teaching certification to become highly qualified by federal
standards and certified by the State of Arizona in the areas of English/Language Arts.
This is her first year teaching at City High, and she is so excited to be a part of this
amazing team.
