I am in my fourth year of teaching, third year of teaching first grade. I graduated in 2014 from UCF. I have been married for 11 years and have a stepson who just recently became a Marine. We are very proud!
I have two dachshund mixes. They are Buttercup and Westley, named after the characters in one of my favorite films, "The Princess Bride". I also have a Brazilian Short-Tailed Opossum named Reggie. He basically looks like a furry mouse with a curly tail.
I enjoy reading books, watching movies, painting, kayaking, and volunteering in different places at my church.
As a teacher, I feel like having students make memories while they learn is the most efficient way. There is a quote that I believe to be true:
We remember 10% of what we read, 20% of what we hear, 30% of what we see, 50% of what we see and hear, 70% of what we discuss with others, 80% of what we personally experience, 95% or what we teach others - Edgar Dale
I have great hopes for the year! Please contact me with any comments, questions, or concerns at Patricia.Gall@marion.k12.fl.us
Thank you for letting me a part of your child's life and giving me the privilege of teaching them!
