My name is Mitchel Gallagher, but I prefer Lee. I teach PLTW Principles of Engineering and Integrated Math II. 2019-2020 is my first year teaching at Leigh High School.
In Spring 2019 I received my Masters of Arts in Teaching from Earlham College in Richmond, IN. Prior to that, I also received a Bachelor of Arts in Physics from Earlham College. I grew up in Indiana and moved to California in the summer of 2019.
I am married to my husband, Michael Gallagher, who works as a special education aide in the district. I am big fan of playing board games and can often be found playing some sort of video game. My husband and I also enjoy reading Marvel's comic books.
I became a teacher because I greatly enjoy physics and math and I want to inspire my students to do so as well.
