Mrs. Galati

Welcome to First Grade!  I am Mrs. Galati and I'm very excited about teaching first grade this year.  This is my twelfth year as a Tolbert Tornado and twentieth year teaching in Loudoun County.  I believe that all children benefit from a nurturing environment. I believe that education is critical to develop respectful critical thinkers, communicators, collaborators, creators and contributors to society. I believe that students need high quality responsive instruction that is authentic, relevant and child centered.  
I graduated from Marymount University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and Psychology and a Master's Degree in Elementary Education.  I am originally from Chicago, but was raised in Fairfax County.  I was lucky enough to begin my teaching career in Fairfax County, close to my childhood home in Herndon and Reston.  When I am not teaching, I enjoy reading, traveling, shopping, spending time with family and friends, and cheering on the Chicago Bears. GO BEARS!  
I am really looking forward to this school year and to meeting all of you!
