Sydney Allen Principal

It is both my privilege and my pleasure to work at Eden Gardens Magnet. I have been employed by Caddo Parish Schools since 1985. I became the counselor at Eden Gardens in 2000, then the Principal in December of 2014. I am happily married to Mark Allen, who also works for Caddo Parish Schools as Classified Personnal Administrator. We have two sons, Tyler and Ryne, both of whom received the very best elementary education here in the garden. I was a mom here for ten years before I became part of the faculty. I personally know the amount of commitment and personal attention that it takes to both be a parent and a faculty member here at Eden Gardens. Even though our nest is “empty,” my husband and I stay very busy keeping up with our jobs and our boys. In my free time I love to cook, scrapbook, entertain and play tennis. Your children are the very best of each day here as the principal of our great school. Thank you for sharing them with us. They are a blessing.
