About Mr. Gallagher

I've never taught anywhere other than Newberg for any real length of time. I feel fortunate that I honed my teaching skills in this community and I now get to put them to good use every day.

 I was born and raised in the Chicago area.  I moved to Oregon 11 years ago and have loved every day. Those of you who have never lived anywhere else don't realize how beautiful this state really is and everything it has to offer.

I graduated from Northern Illinois University, which is in DeKalb, Illinois (home of barbed wire) with a degree in history and I have a master's degree in teaching from Pacific University in Forest Grove.

My wife and I have three daughters ranging from three to 12 years old and we live in Canby.  They generally keep me very busy, so when I'm not at school, I am probably doing something with them.

I also LOVE sports.  I played tennis, basketball, soccer, and football at various levels throughout my life and during inclement weather, my weekends are generally spent watching football (soccer) and football (American).

  3. I figured I would take a trip down memory lane and say hi to my absolute favorite teacher in the whole wide world. Thanks Mr. Gallagher.

  4. Thanks unknown human! I'm at the HS now if you'd ever like to come by and reveal your secret identity, and catch up.
