What Do You Love Most about Tattnall?

I love the sense of community we have at Tattnall! It is like living in a small town where everyone knows each other and we take care of one another!


Susannah Allen started her career in Early Childhood Education in 1991, and she began teaching at Tattnall in 1996. She received her B.S. in Early Childhood Education from Georgia Southern '90, and her Masters of Education from Georgia Southern '91. She has taught K-4, K-5, 1st, and 2nd grade during her career. She is currently working as the Director of Curriculum, Instruction, and Student Services for grades K3 through 6th! On a personal note, Mrs. Allen married her college sweetheart, Donnie Allen, who is a Tattnall alumnus. They have been married since 1991 and have two sons and one daughter. All three of their children have grown up here at Tattnall. Jake was a member of the Class of 2014 , Jordan, Class of 2016, and Wes, Class of 2020. Both Donnie and Susannah feel blessed that their children have received an excellent education in a loving, Christian environment. In their spare time, the Allens enjoy the outdoors. They love going to the beach and fishing in the Gulf. They also enjoy going to watch their children play sports!

Fun Fact:

I'd rather go to a football game than go shopping at the mall!
