"It's exciting to be nominated. It's an extra honor because the nomination came from my students," Gallagher said.

 

Gallagher has been teaching eighth-grade social studies at Berlin's Stephen Decatur Middle School for the last six years. She graduated from Mount Saint Mary's University after studying history and sociology and received her Master of Arts in teaching in 2001 from Salisbury University.
