Mr. Gaundi Allen standing by ACMS signACMS is proud to announce that Mr. Gaundi Allen is our 2020-2021 Teacher of the Year! Mr. Allen is our excellent 8th grade Social Studies teacher!  As a colleague, Mr. Allen has shown leadership in our school as the School Improvement Team Chairperson and has served as the 8th-grade team grade-level chair for several years.  Mr. Allen is a huge sports fan and is quick to tell you the latest news and stats of multiple teams that he is following.  Mr. Allen is a proud graduate of Fayetteville State University and exhibits Bronco Pride throughout the halls of ACMS. He represents his alma mater well and takes students to visit his former campus almost every year to show them what a college experience could be like with the right mindset and determination. While he is a big fan he also gives back to our students in the role of a Coach. Mr. Allen says,  “My title as Coach is something that is near and dear to my heart. I have coached football, baseball, softball, and of course, wrestling.  With more than 130 wins in 15 seasons and nearly 7 championships in those years and a near 60 game win streak in wrestling, it has been a great ride.” My greatest goal as an educator is summed up in what the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stated, “We must remember that intelligence is not enough. Intelligence plus character–that is the goal of true education.”  Congratulations Mr. Allen!
This just in… Mr. Allen has been named one of the top ten finalists in CCS. He will be representing the 71st District. ACMS is so proud of you!
