Welcome to a new school year! My name is Miss Gallagher, and I am thrilled to be team teaching this year with Mrs Bland and Mrs Giangiulio. Team teaching is two teachers joining forces to instruct one class. Both complement each other by sharing in the planning, the teaching, the group discussions, and the fun.
Many of you may have an idea of who I am, but I thought I'd tell you a bit about myself before the school year begins. I have had the pleasure of working in the Voorhees School District for many years. At Rowan University, I earned certificates in Elementary Education and Teacher of Students with Disabilities. I grew up with 4 brothers and played all the time outside. My two favorite sports to play are baseball and basketball, but I also enjoy watching football – Go EAGLES! I have enjoyed my summer by going for long walks, drawing, being with friends, and (with my dog, Zippy, laying next to me) reading mysteries – the scarier the better.
Now, you need to get your brains in gear to figure out the rest about me. My birth month is between April and June. My birth day is 11 x 2. Zippy is 64 ÷ 8. Number of children I have is 2,345 x 0. My age is... really! Did you think I would tell you my age :-) My favorite color is the sky hue (if you need to - look up "hue" in dictionary.com) and my second favorite color is the same as the round object that lights up that sky and makes the flowers stretch up high. (Hey! I rhymed!). One last tidbit about me, my favorite animal (actually a reptile) is the one who took his time and won the race. Slow and steady will always get you to the finish line.
On September 9th, we begin our new journey. I can't wait to see everyone shine. You got this!!!
