    Welcome to Impact Academy for the 21-22 school year! We are beyond excited to have everyone back in the building for Impact Academy Blended learning days and remotely for our new division, Impact Academy Virtual. I am your high school graduation coach, Ms. Valissa Allen; prior to this school year, I taught HS English for grades 9-12. I am a founding teacher who served as the English "department" of the Impact Academy Blended Learning Program which began in 2012.


    I also served as the first instructional administrator for Edgenuity based in Scottsdale, AZ during the 2015-2016 school year. I have been teaching for 26 years in traditional school buildings including 16 years as a blended and virtual educator for programs in Georgia, Alabama, Alaska, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Nevada, Missouri, Pennsylvania, and Oklahoma. 


    My greatest joy as a teacher was helping my students learn how to transfer what they learn in school to make it useful in their current and future lives. As graduation coach, I look forward to guiding you with your educational experience building towards the acquisition of your high school diploma when you reach your final year.
