Dr. Judith Allen - Pacific East District Superintendent

Dr. Judith “Judy” Allen was selected to be the District Superintendent of Schools for the DoDEA Pacific East (mainland Japan) District and assumed her duties on August 11, 2019. Dr. Allen is a career educator with extensive teaching and administrative experience. She joined DoDEA more than 30 years ago as a classroom teacher in Europe and went on to hold several positions of progressive responsibility in both Europe and the Pacific. She was selected as superintendent for the Pacific West District in 2014.

Dr. Allen earned her Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and a Master Degree in Public Administration from Troy State University, European Division. She received her Doctorate in Educational Leadership from the University of Nevada, Reno.

With a portfolio of 20 schools and more than 8,200 students, the DoDEA Pacific East District’s approximately 1,000 professional educators and support personnel are responsible for delivering high-quality pre-K through 12th grade educational programs to students in seven military communities across mainland Japan.

Dr. Allen is very familiar with the unique challenges and opportunities associated with military life. She was married to an Air Force veteran, and spent more than two decades transitioning with her family between military installations in Europe, the Pacific, and the U.S. In so doing, she has had the opportunity to call Texas, Ohio, Arkansas, Japan, Massachusetts, South Carolina, Hawaii, Nevada, Spain, Turkey, Okinawa, Germany, England, Korea and Japan (for a second time) “home.” She is the mother of three children, Laura, Ted, Jr. and Marc and five grandchildren. Her son, Marc is retired from the U.S. Air Force.
