Hello! My name is Emily Gallas, and this will be my fourth 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 enjoy all of the outdoor activities that Colorado has to offer with my family. My husband is also a teacher and we have a three year old daughter, and welcomed a son this past March.
I attended Regis University for my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education and completed my Master's Degree through Adams State University. I became a teacher becuase I was inspired by my third grade teacher, Mrs. Celemente, over 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!
