Christin Gallagher is a Middle Kids teacher at Rivendell School. In her role she is responsible for continuing the work and skills developed in Younger Kids or other academic institutions, providing a positive yet challenging classroom environment, and over the course of her students’ years in Middle Kids prepare them for the transition to Older Kids.
I found my way to Rivendell School in 2013. I was drawn to Rivendell for the individualized academic approach as well as the hands-on materials that are used in the classrooms. I started my time at Rivendell in the Preschool Program. In 2019, I moved up to the Middle Kids level. I love teaching the students in Middle Kids. Their enthusiasm for learning is infectious. They love digging deep into our curriculum and are incredibly creative. I love that Rivendell fosters the individual. Rivendell meets each student on their educational path to honor their strengths and provides support in areas where they are striving.
My philosophy as an educator is to work with a program that is designed to incorporate and develop fundamental skills and to convey to my students my enthusiasm for learning and discovery.
My family has lived in Fort Collins since 2004. We live just outside the city limits with our dogs and chickens. In my spare time, I love to cook and bake, work on craft projects, draw and take photos.
