Mrs. Gilluley returns to Third Academy this school year as the Principal of Junior/Senior High School and the lead teacher in our Junior High 2 Classroom. She comes to us with a Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Education Degrees and is a firm believer that all children want to experience success and, with support and guidance, they will continue to achieve.
“I want my students to have the confidence to try new things and persevere when things get difficult. I want them to know that success comes from their hard work and that as their teacher I will always support them,” says Mrs. Gilluley. “Learning is a life-long endeavor and I want to learn along with my students.”
Mrs. Gilluley loves to teach math and appreciates how challenging it can be, given her own experiences as a student. She is also an avid reader and believes that learning to enjoy reading can open up a whole world of new adventures.
She is married and her two daughters (ages 17 and 14) are involved in English riding and Irish Dance respectively. Outside of teaching at Third Academy, you will find her running her girls around or scrapbooking and creating visual memories for her family. Some day she aspires to visit every country in the world!
