Mr. Gala

Hello Lalor Families, 

Thank you for reading this page. I hope that you find this mini-biography helpful. I grew up in East Brunswick NJ, and I graduated from Rutgers University with a bachelor's degree in history and psychology. I am currently attending the  Graduate School of Education at Rutgers University where I am pursuing a Masters's Degree in Special Education and Administration. This will be my eighth year teaching.  For the past seven years, I have been working in the Hamilton Township School District as a Basic Skills and Reading Recovery Teacher. I hold teaching certifications in Elementary K-6, Reading Recovery, Special Education K-12, supplementary reading and math instruction for grades K-8, and I am certified as a google educator for level 1. I also have experience as a classroom teacher and as a special education teacher. My passion is working with students who have academic difficulties. In my spare time, I like to hangout with my dog Skip, my friends, and my family. I am also a serious professional wrestling fan and like to watch football. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me by email: jgala@htsdnj.org or you can call the school.
