Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! My name is Catherine Gallagher, and I am the Algebra 2/Algebra 2H and Math Reasoning teacher at St. Monica Catholic High School. I was born and raised in sunny Southern California and attended college at UCLA... go Bruins! After working several years in the healthcare industry, I went back to school to earn my teaching credential in mathematics. Teaching is my passion and has brought so much joy and purpose to my life. Outside of school I enjoy hiking, spending time at the beach, and reading. I am looking forward to an amazing school year!
