• Welcome to Fourth Grade!
    My name is Carrie Gallagher.  This is my 5th year at Oak Ridge School and my first year teaching 4th grade math and science.  I am filled with excitement for the 2018-2019 school year, and I'm looking forward to learning and growing with your children!   
    Teaming will continue at Oak Ridge this year.  I will teach math, science and social studies. Teachers communicate daily on your child's progress and by teaming, can specialize in subject areas to provide the highest level of education for each child in our district.  Feel free to contact me via phone or email with any questions!  No question or comment is too small.  Only through open communication can we help our future generation grow to their fullest potential.  Be sure to sign up for Class Dojo and follow my twitter page for regular pictures and tweets on what's happening in class!    
     A little bit about me...I have Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and worked in the social work field for several years before obtaining my teaching degree and Masters in Education from UIC in 2007.  I am originally from Michigan and moved to Chicago in 2003.  My husband, Curry, and I have three children: Deirdre (entering 5th grade), Liam (entering 4th grade) and Brigid (entering 2nd grade). Most of my time outside of work is spent having fun with my family. We have relatives in Michigan and on the East Coast so we love to travel whenever we can.  I also enjoy spending time cooking, reading and camping.
