Hello, My name is
Mark Von Allmen
I teach High School and Middle School Social Studies here at Military Magnet Academy. I am looking forward to an exciting 2015-16 school year and hope that the cadets experience a challenging and rewarding year. This year I will be teaching 6 classes. Included in these classes are an Advanced Placement World History class to Sophomores , an Advanced Placement Human Geography class to Freshmen, a World Geography and Honors World Geography class to Freshmen, a 7th grade honors World Geography class and an 8th grade Honors SC history class.
This is my 6th year of teaching and my 6th year here at MMA. I have a BA Degree in Social Studies Education 5-12 and have an Endorsement as a Highly Qualified Teacher. In addition to that I have a Certification for teaching AP Human Geography from Clemson AP Institute. I came into teaching after 26 years as a small business owner and feel that my experience in the competitive business world gives me a unique perspective and real life situations to share with the students relating to various topics in Social Studies.
When I am not teaching I enjoy spending time with my family enjoying the beautiful Charleston area. In addition to that I enjoy spending time outdoors involved in running, swimming and kayaking. This all fits well with my 2nd job, coaching Cross Country and Track here at MMA.
