Ms. Kristel Gallagher
My name is Ms. Kristel Gallagher. This is my second year in the Manville School District and I am extremely grateful to be part of such a wonderful family. I am very excited to continue my career in Manville as a second grade inclusion teacher at Weston School.
I was born and raised in Mendham, NJ and graduated from West Morris Mendham High School in 2014. I attended Rider University where I majored in Elementary Education and Psychology and minored in Early Childhood Education and Special Education. I graduated in 2018 with my certifications in Elementry Education (K-6), Early Childhood Education (P-3), and Special Education. I began my teaching career in the Clinton Township School District where I taught as a first grade general education teacher in an inclusion classroom. I am a lifelong learner and I believe that it is is exteremly important to keep myself up to date on the best practices in the field of education.
Outside of school I enjoy coaching cheerleading, being the Director of the Summer Camp in my town, reading, watching Netflix, walking my two dogs (Drake and Dakota) and cleaning! I am looking forward to continuing my educational adventure in such an amazing community!
