A.T. Allen Administration
Sue Nash - Principal
I have lived in Cabarrus County for over half my life. My family moved to Cabarrus County when I was a teenager and I graduated from Central Cabarrus High (Go Vikings!) I earned both my Undergraduate and Master’s Degrees from Western Carolina University (Go Catamounts!). Outside of school I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I am an avid reader and enjoy live music, gardening, cooking and walking my two sweet dogs. Traveling to the beach and mountains are on my list of favorite things to do.
As the Principal of A.T. Allen Elementary I would like to welcome all of you to our webpage and our fantastic school. We have an excellent staff committed to excelling in our work of teaching children. I began my career in education 16 years ago at Weddington Hills Elementary, where I taught for 9 years. I have served as an administrator in Cabarrus County Schools for the last 7 years and am honored to be the Principal at A.T. Allen. I look forward to working with each of you to make A.T. Allen a great place for our students to learn and grow.
