Hello, my name is Amiee Gallagher. I am so excited to be your child's first grade teacher!
Just a little about me...I am married to Bill Gallagher, assistant principal at Northshore High School. We have two beautiful daughters, Alanna and Addison. Alanna graduated from Northshore High School and currently attends LSU. She is persuing a degree in Physical Therapy. Addison is in 3rd grade here at Whispering Forest! In our spare time, my husband and I run a non-profit organization, Addie's Angels. We help children in the greater New Orleans area who have limb differences. The organization was inspired by our daughter Addison. I earned my Bachelor's degree from Our Lady of Holy Cross College in elementary education. This is my 16th year of teaching. 11 of those years have been right here is St. Tammany Parish! I have been teaching 1st grade for 12 years. I love teaching 1st grade at Whispering Forest!
This school year, I hope to inspire my students to be the best they can be! I strive to create a loving, learning environment where all students feel safe and free to express themselves. I want my students to understand that mistakes are inevitable and accepted in our classroom as a part of growing and learning. We will work together to master the foundational skills for a lifetime of learning. Looking forward to a fantastic school year!
