On Tuesday, Jan. 2, Lipscomb Academy hosted its second annual Partner in Education event in the school’s McCadams Athletic Center. The event, attended by more than 350 educators from 70 different schools, welcomed renowned teacher, author, presenter and coach Kelly Gallagher as its keynote speaker.
Since 1985, Kelly Gallagher has devoted himself to the teaching of reading, writing, listening and speaking—first and foremost, as a high school ELA teacher in Anaheim, California, and also as an author/consultant who works with educators around the world. Today, he is considered one of the leading voices in literacy education. Always in search of a better way, Kelly honed his craft by taking on leadership positions in several key literacy programs, including the California Reading and Literature Project, the South Basin Writing Project at California State University, Long Beach, and the Puente Project, a University of California outreach program that prepares under-represented high school students for transition into universities.
Partner in Education events are designed to help Lipscomb Academy teachers connect with professionals across a variety of academic fields to discuss best practices, advancements in education and collaborate with one another.
