My name is Mrs. Gallaway and I am one of the first grade teachers this year! Let me start by saying, I am so excited to meet and have you in my class. Before we get to business, let me tell you a little bit about myself:
Hometown: Brielle, NJ
Education: Arcadia University
- Elementary Education: K to 6th
- Special Education: Pre K to 12th
- BA in Elementary Education
- M. Ed in Special Education
Fun Facts: This past spring, Mr. Gallaway and I adopted a kitten. Her name is Mei! I will be sharing a lot of funny stories about her throughout the year. I am also a very big Disney fan! I was lucky enough to visit Disney World last winter with my family! Do you like sports? I do, especially hockey and baseball. Go Flyers!
First Grade Happenings: Learning will be a blast this year! Some of the FUN things we will learn about include living things, like plants and animals! We’ll take a pretend trip around the world to learn about different winter holidays and traditions. We will also go on plenty of adventures in books as we practice our reading skills. We’ll get to share some of our real life adventures as we learn more about writing. In math you will continue to work with ten frames and by the end of the year, you will be learning how to add and subtract two-digit numbers!
