    About Me:
    Jean Marie Gallo
             I have spent a large part of my life working with children.  It started with babysitting during my middle school years and continued through high school and college working with summer camp programs.  I always knew this was what I was meant to do.  Working in a variety of capacities at Shoemaker has broadened my experience and understanding of a variety of learners. My experience includes 3rd grade and 4th grade classroom teacher, Achieve ELA teacher/reading specialist, and now 5th grade classroom teacher. I'm very excited to begin this next adventure in my career!
    Fun Facts:
    • 3 Things Most Important to Me: Family, Faith, Teaching
    • My Family: My husband, 2 daughters, my parents, 1 sister, and 3 brothers
    • Favorite Summer Activities: Spending time at the beach, reading, and listening to the waves
    • When I'm not Teaching I enjoy: reading, cooking (trying new recipes), working out, and doing it all with family and friends!
    • Favorite Book: A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
    • Favorite Movie: I love so many movies for different reasons, I can't pick one!
