Teacher Allisen Hein has been working with children for over twenty years. After the birth of her daughter she took a break from teaching to stay home. Having her daughter go through Kenilworth Community Preschool she learned the value of a strong community. Now she returns to strengthen our community as our teacher!
As a young adult, Allisen taught swimming lessons and found her passion for education. After obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Portland State University, she began working with Trillium Family Services. There, as a Child and Adolescent Treatment Specialist, she worked with children facing social and behavioral challenges. Allisen then furthered her education obtaining a Masters of Arts in Teaching from Lewis and Clark College with an early childhood endorsement. She taught in The North Clackamas school district for two years before having children of her own.
Allisen is excited to be back in the classroom, as well as working with a group of families dedicated to this community. In her free time Allisen enjoys camping and hiking with her family, as well as curling up with a good book.
