Hello everyone! My name is Jessica Galligani and I am the art teacher at Erma Siegel Elementary. I am thrilled to work in the same school that I attended as a young girl and I am so grateful to have, what I believe is, the best job in the world. After leaving Siegel High School, I went to Middle Tennessee State University where I received my degree in Elementary Art Education. I am excited to work with you and can’t wait to start this fall. Scroll down to learn a little bit more about me.
I love to travel, laugh, eat good food and dance. Fortunately, I was able to study abroad my entire college career. Thanks to the fantastic Study Abroad team at MTSU, I was able to live and study art in Brazil, Denmark, France, Italy, Austria, Sweden, Germany, and Ecuador.
My ultimate goal as a teacher is to provide students with more than just knowledge, but a respect for learning and a curiosity that they will carry with them for the rest of their lives. I hope to do so and I can't wait to work with each and every one of you!
