       Hi! Thank you for visiting our class website. My name is Lauren Galletti and I live in Exton with my husband and our children, Matthew and Josie.  I was born in South Carolina and moved to Delaware when I was just one year old.  We lived in Newark, Delaware for most of my life, where my mom was a high school teacher and my dad a men's basketball coach. I have great memories from elementary school and had great teachers who made a strong impact on my life. I hope for the same for all of my students.
       This is my seventeenth year of teaching. I have taught Kindergarten, third and fourth grade, and have been back as a second grade teacher since 2013. I graduated from the University of Delaware, where I studied education.  I then went on to receive my master's degree in Elementary Education at Wilmington University. I taught for four years in Wilmington, Delaware and then moved to Pennsylvania. This is my thirteenth year at K.D. Markley. 
       My husband works for Comcast Spotlight. He is also a drummer in the Philadelphia area. He enjoys playing gigs and teaching others his love of music.  Our son MJ, short for Matthew Junior, was born in September of 2013 and has brought so much joy to our lives. It is hard to believe that we have a third grader in the house! Josie was born in February 2016 and is full of life. She is in first grade and loves going to school just like her Mom! 
    I love teaching at K.D. Markley and am very thankful to be a teacher in the Great Valley School District!
