Ms. Carey Gallagher began her teaching career in September 1996 teaching Grade 2 at the Delia School of Canada in Hong Kong. Aside from teaching a culturally diverse student population, the highlights of this first chapter of her career included witnessing firsthand the handover of Hong Kong from Britain to China, and backpacking through many countries in southeast Asia and Africa. In September 1998, she moved back to Ontario to accept a job at the Marden Public School teaching Grade 4. Ms. Gallagher’s SJK adventure began in September 2000, and she has since taught MYP and serves as SJK's MYP Coordinator.
The natural campus at SJK drew Ms. Gallagher in. After growing up on a lake in northern Ontario, the outdoors has always been where she is most comfortable. She immediately felt a tremendous connection with the pond and surrounding SJK property. Ms. Gallagher now lives in the village of Maryhill with her husband Scott, sons Ian and Cale, and black lab Macgyver. In her free time, it fills Ms. Gallagher’s heart to do service work, like organizing the Relay For Life in Woolwich and volunteering within the village.
