Salutations!  My name is Michael Gallagher.  I come from a large family, three brothers and four sisters.  The people that I admire the most are my parents and my wife, who have taught me perseverance.  I graduated from Most Holy Redeemer School in Evergreen Park and Brother Rice High School in Chicago.  For college I studied History at Western Illinois University.  After teaching for a few years I studied Science Education at National Louis University and earned a Master’s Degree in Education.  Recently, I retired from the Chicago Public Schools, where I taught for over twenty-four years.  I am grateful to be teaching at Saint Ferdinand and optimistic that we will learn some new and exciting things.  In my spare time I love running, reading and spending time with my wife, daughter and two grandsons.  My favorite book is The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien.   Also, I enjoy walking my dogs, Foxy and Diva.  Foxy is an English bulldog and Diva is a golden retriever/ collie.
