Mrs. Erin Galope
Hello! My name is Erin Galope and I am teaching English III and Dual Credit English this year! I am super excited to be teaching in Wills Point, because I am home!
I graduated from Wills Point High School in 1996, attended TVCC from 1996-1997. I then transferred to the University of Texas @ Arlington where I received my Bachelor's in Music/Business. I worked in the business field for many years, but I did not like what I was doing. I felt God was pulling me in a different direction. After talking to my husband, I went back to school. In 2015, I graduated from Texas A&M-Commerce with my second Bachelor's in English. I immediately went into the graduate school and earned my Master's Degree in English with an emphasis on Children's/Adolescent's Literature.
I have taught ENG 100 (College Remedial English), ENG 1302 (English Composition), and ENG 2323 (British Literature II). This will be my first year in the public education system. I look forward to working with the students and preparing them for a world beyond High School.
My family and I have live here in Wills Point and active in the community. My son, AJ, is a member of the Wills Point Junior High School band. My husband, Arthur, is the assistant band director at Quinlan ISD. We currently have two pets - Sandy (a yellow lab) and Boots (a gray Siamese-Tabby mix). We also are active in our church, Russell Memorial United Methodist Church. AJ is active in the youth, Arthur plays drums in our Praise Band, and I am serving as the Lay Leader.
As I stated, I feel like I have come home again! I look forward to working with our wonderful students and community!
