     Welcome to Mrs. Allred's webpage!  This is my second year at Ponder ISD and I love being a part of the Ponder community!  I grew up in Boyd, TX, and continued my education after graduation at Texas Tech University, where I received my degree in Exercise & Sports Science.  I began my teaching career at Northwest ISD where I coached and taught for five years.  I received my Masters of Counseling & Development in 2010 and was a middle school counselor at NISD for two years.   I then went to Boyd ISD, where I was the High School Counselor and District Testing Coordinator (three years) for Boyd ISD.  During that time I also received my Principal Certification through Lamar University.  
    I have been married to my wonderful husband, Duane, for 12 years, and we have three children that keep us on our toes- Makson (9), Kaden (7), & Lilli (3).  I am thrilled to be a part of the Ponder community and school district, as the Junior High Assistant Principal.  I look forward to meeting everyone and to an amazing 2017-2018 school year!
