I presently teach eighth grade English and Science at Radnor Middle School. Previously, I taught fourth grade at Garnet Valley Elementary School. The one field trip I was looking forward to this year was the annual 8th grade camping trip to Sandy Hill, MD. We were there from Sept. 21st – 23rd, and we could not have asked for better weather. It was a great trip! Although it is difficult to pinpoint one teacher as my favorite, I would have to say my 4th grade teacher, Mrs. Galarus, stands out the most. She had high expectations for all students, and provided us with demanding challenges that ended up instilling in me a strong work ethic, which I have carried forward throughout the remainder of my schooling and into my professional career.
