Meet The Teacher

My name is Mrs. Kirchner (formally known as Miss Gallo)! This year I will be co-teaching with Mrs. DePasquale in 2nd grade. I am so excited to be entering my 7th year at Dugan as a special education teacher. I attended Monmouth University where I received my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education & English along with a certification in Special Education.


When I am not teaching, I love to read good books, go for a run, and spend time with my family and friends. I absolutely love Broadway plays and eating tons of chocolate ice cream! 


 I am so excited to be your child's teacher this school and look forward to the many memories we will make together :)
