What do you love about teaching at GALS?

The students! GALS students are silly, brilliant, empathetic, and imaginative. I also love that I get to go running during the day and teach classes covered in sweat.

How has teaching at GALS impacted you?

GALS has allowed me to become my fullest self, and I have learned alongside my students who I am, why I matter, and what matters to me. I’ve learned to use my voice when I need to, and I feel empowered to shift our world towards equity, justice, and kindness.
