Hello! My name is Emily Gallas, and this will be my third year teaching third grade at Mountain View Elementary. Before Coming to Mountain View I taught third grade in Denver Public Schools for five years. Though not technically a Colorado native, I grew up near Franktown, Colorado and attended Regis University for my undergraduate degree. Recently I completed my Master's Degree through Adams State University. I became a teacher becuase I was inspired by my third grade teacher, Mrs. Celemente, 20 years ago. It is my goal to create a learning environment where every student feels valued, where every student feels comfortable taking risks, and where learning is fun!
