Chad Gallahan

“I was looking through some old papers at my parent’s house and found a drawing from the first grade of what I wanted to be when I grew up. It was a picture of me coaching soccer.”   Chad Gallahan ’03 has realized his dream and then some.  In addition to taking Valwood’s varsity soccer team to the region playoffs multiple times, Gallahan serves as Dean of Valwood’s Middle School and teaches Middle School math and science. 

Gallahan received a Bachelor of Science in Middle Grade Education from Valdosta State University and says he has always enjoyed working with young people who are eager to learn. “I receive great satisfaction when a student has that “aha” moment and understands the material being taught.”
