Mrs. Kelsey L. Allensworth (Smith)
Hello! My name is Mrs. Allensworth (previously Ms. Smith), and I teach Level Economics, AP Macroeconomics, and AP U.S. Government at Huntsville High School. I'm in room 1807. I'm a home-grown hornet; I graduated valedictorian of HHS back in 2009, and cumma sum laude from SHSU in 2013 with a degree in Multiplatform Journalism and a minor in Economics. Over the years, I've been a sports statistician, radio host, voice-over actress, videographer, entrepreneur, and lending assistant for First Financial Bank. It took a while for me to find my way back to HHS, but I decided to get my alternative teaching certificate in Social Studies a few years ago, and I'm back for my 6th year of teaching in 2021-2022!
Fun facts about me: I'm a quarter-inch shy of being five feet tall. My favorite thing to do is to travel. I've backpacked solo through Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Wyoming, and Washington State. I backpacked with my now-husband through Ireland, Germany, France, British Columbia, and Mexico. I'm a musician. I love to read. I love to look for elements of the extraordinary in everyday life.
My thoughts on education: I believe that education equips you to build your own door to success. Every person is utterly unique, so we all want something totally unique out of life. Education should be personal and relevant. Education should be exciting. My teaching style reflects these beliefs - I try to start and finish each and every day with obvious enthusiasm and energy. I truly believe every single one of my students is awesome and is capable of success!
