Welcome back to our current Mustangs and welcome to our new families. I would like to take the opportunity to re-introduce myself to you all.

This is my fifth year at Allen East and first as your Middle School Principal.  I came to Allen East with 20 years of teaching experience ranging from grades 3-7. I previously taught in Toledo Public, Columbus City, Lima City, and Lima Shawnee. I am a 1991 graduate of Shawnee High School and a 1996 graduate of the University of Toledo. My diverse background enables me to bring new ideas and resources to this great district.  

The staff and I strive to provide the best education and instill a passion in your children to become life- long learners. We accomplish this by building relationships with all students and helping them form positive social skills. 

We are excited to start the 2021-2022 school year.  Please let us know what the staff and I can do to make this a great year. 

Go Mustangs!

Mrs. Patterson
