Mrs. Galusha

Hello, my name is Mrs. Galusha. This is my first year as a lead teacher in Pre-K. I have been a teacher assistant in Pre-K for the past three years with Kannapolis City Schools. I have been married to my wonderful husband for 11 years and we have a beautiful 10 year old daughter that also goes to KCS schools. I love swimming and reading and enjoy doing both of these activities at the beach in my free time. I look forward to working with your child(ren) this school year and I have a lot of fun and interesting activities planned.
