Madame Sandrine Gallay


After 6 years of teaching from preK to 5th grade in France, I decided to trade my mountainous scenery for the desert of Arizona. I really enjoy to experience new things in my personnal and professional life. I like to travel a lot : I lived one year in New-Zealand and 6 months in Ireland, where I was an aupair. After that, I've been to different european countries and Canada. My other favourites things are reading, being outside, learn a lot of different things. 

I arrived in Desert Sun Academy in the middle of a worldwide pandemic. But I really enjoyed to teach French, Maths and Sciences to Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade this year and I'm really looking forward to continue next year with my current students and meet our class of 2034 for a fantastic Kindergarten year !
