Teacher Spotlight: Mrs Gallagher

Kieran Daly, Entertainment Editor


What do you like most about teaching?

I love the relationships that I build with my students and the staff here on campus, I think that’s the largest benefit from having this job. I also love the subjects that I teach because I help teach skills that students would not learn in the core classroom.

What is your favorite class to teach?

Currently I teach leadership and PALS. My favorite is PALS by far because it gives us that opportunity to really put our leadership skills to the test and serve the school and our community.

What is the most important aspect in your classroom?

I think it’s all about the relationships. I think that the better, more appropriate relationships I have with students are crucially important to the classes I teach. The better those relationships are the more likely that the student will have a desire to demonstrate the skills that they learn in my classes.

Has there ever been a moment when your students have taught you something?

Absolutely, and I will tell you, I think I am a much better parent today because of the things I have learned through my students and the dynamics we have in class.
