Mr. Nic Allen
Mr. Allen Introduction
After spending fifteen years in the retail furniture industry I decided to answer the constant calling I felt to be a teacher. My wife and I decided to return to school together to obtain our teaching certification and Masters in Education degrees and I began teaching high school social studies while she entered the elementary classroom. This my second year at Mount Pleasant High School after spending the previous five years at Mooresville High School. Last year I completed graduate school degrees in Instructional Systems Technology and School Administration which led to a new role for me. This year, I'm assuming the role of Instructional Technology Facilitator for MPHS. I'm looking forward to assisting our teachers in adapting technology to enhance student learning. I also coach football at MPHS and this year I'm excited to take on the women's basketball head coach position. Go Tigers!
I received a B.A. from UNC-Wilmington, a M.A. Teaching degree from UNC-Charlotte, and I will complete Masters degrees in Instrutional Systems Technology (Dec) and School Administration (May) this year.
I've been married to my wife, Lisa, for 23 years. We met on the first day of college! We have three wonderful children-Charlotte, Hank and Andy. Charlotte recently graduated from high school and is attending Wake Forest University where she is also a cheerleader. Hank is a senior at Mount Pleasant. He plays multiple sports and really enjoyed his first year as a part of the Mount Pleasant family. My youngest, Andy, will be a freshman at MPHS this year. You can usually find him building experiments and practicing golf. We live in Mooresville, but our family is very committed to each other so you will find all of us at Mount Pleasant events.
