Hi! My name is Ms. Gallup and I am excited to be our media specialist at San Marcos. Our school is a place where students love to learn and teachers love to teach. We all work hard to see students succeed beyond their own expectations. San Marcos is a close knit community that I am proud to have been a part of for over a decade now.

My Education and Professional Background

Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education with a minor in Early Childhood: Northern State University, Aberdeen, SD (1998) Masters of Art in Education / Educational Counseling: University of Phoenix (2004). I earned National Board Certification in Early Childhood (2017). I taught both Kindergarten and First Grade for two decades and greatly enjoy the enormous amount of growth that takes place in these younger years. As a new Media Specialist I am continuing my own love of learning and sharing my love of children's books with our students. I have proudly spent my career teaching in Title I schools.

My Educational Philosophy

My educational philosophy is continually evolving and changing as my own knowledge about teaching and learning continues to grow. I believe that all children can learn and that this begins with a partnership between teacher and parents who all have high expectations. Learning is hard work and sometimes it takes some bumps along the way to reach those end goals. I believe in a structured classroom environment with clear expectations for my students, but in the end know that we WILL have a lot of FUN along the way.
