Spotlight - Mrs. Ann Gallagher

Mrs. Ann Gallagher

Ann Gallagher is one of our amazingly fantastic kindergarten teachers. Mrs. Gallagher has been teaching for 23 years.  She is patient, kind and understanding with those kindergarteners.  She always has a smile on her face and a kind word to say. We love having Mrs. Gallagher as part of our Brookside family.

Mrs. Gallagher graduated high school from Orem High and from Utah State University with a degree in Early Childhood Education.  She also has a degree in speech.

Ann Gallagher was born in Bountiful Utah, but moved to Orem in Kindergarten and lived there until she got married.  She moved to Springville about 20 years ago. She has 5 children, all of which have graduated High School and kind of moved out. Ann  loves mysteries both in books and in movies. She also likes to watch period pieces on PBS like Downton Abby. She likes to travel and one of her favorite places to go is Lake Powell. 

What do you love about your job?  “I LOVE kindergarten because there is so much growth. You know the saying: "All that I learned, I learned in Kindergarten!"  It is so true! They learn to share with all, they start their journey in reading and math, they learn to work hard and stick with something until they are done!  Kindergarten ROCKS!”  

What is something no one may know about you?I played Basketball in High School and we were the State Champs my Senior Year! I was also the Sterling Scholar in Home Economics.”
