Welcome to Mrs. Galla's Kindergarten

Building Success through Dedication 

I am a Kindergarten teacher at Octavio Paz in Chicago. I am very passionate about what I do and dedicated to growing in my craft. I try to keep up with current educational trends and research by listening to Podcasts and books, reading articles and blogs about what is trending in education, and sharing new ideas with other educators. I am very interested in play based learning and providing my students with activities that are highly engaging that help them think deeply about their learning. This is the beginning of my journey through inquiry and a play based learning environment. I love to talk shop so hit me up with a question or even if you'd like to chat. 

Cheers,

mrs. galla
