Kindergarten

Mrs. Anne Galloway

I am almost a “Life-long” Eagle as I attended St. Dominic Catholic School and began my teaching career here in 1987.  I taught Kindergarten in KA (1987-88) and First Grade (1988-95). I “moved around the corner” and taught First Grade at St. Luke’s (1995-1999).  I also have experience in Preschool at St. Mark’s (2001-2003). I returned to St. Dominic as an assistant in 2006 and then moved back to teaching First Grade (2007-2013), Second Grade (2013-2017) and was the librarian for the last 2 years.  I am happy to be “home” where I am blessed to be able to share my faith on a daily basis with my students.  

I am a graduate of McGill-Toolen Catholic High School and the University of South Alabama with a degree in Early Childhood Education.  My husband, David, and I have three children: John David (Mary Kate), Elizabeth (Michael), and Caroline who are all alumni of SDCS and McGill-Toolen.  We are members of St. Dominic Parish.

 

Ms. Danielle Kittrell

I have been teaching since 1996 after I graduated from the University of Montevallo.  My first eight years of teaching were at St. Pius X where I taught first grade.  The next eight years I taught first grade and one year of Kindergarten at a title 1 public school in Tallahassee, FL.  I am so happy to be back in the Catholic schools, especially St. Dominic since I attended here as well.  I’ve been teaching Kindergarten at St. Dominic since 2012 and I absolutely love it!
