Epsom Central School Staff And Faculty
Jennifer Gallagher, Mathematics Teacher, 6th and 7th grade.
Jenn is a middle school math teacher. She has a BA in Mathematics
from Keene State College and is starting her eighth year of teaching
at ECS. Jenn loves working with middle school kids and watching them
at an age when they change so much from sixth to seventh grade.
She also enjoys the fact that she never knows what her students are
going to say next, and can never predict what the day will be like
in her classes. Jenn says that she chose middle school because of
the age of the children and the content of the math curriculum. She
believes the children still want to be in school and still want to
learn, but, at the same time, they’re capable of working on their
own. Jenn talks about one student to whom she will award the “Random
Kid” award since he asks questions unrelated to the topic currently
being discussed, such as, “What’s your favorite fruit?” or “What’s
your favorite exotic animal?"
Jenn loves being at ECS because of the staff she works with and what
she describes as “small town innocent children.” The kids in her
classes have no serious issues, never fight, and rarely use bad
language. Even a dance she once chaperoned was innocent, much to her
surprise. Jenn would suggest that parents spend more time with their
kids and keep them active and outside. “Ask how their day was and
what they did,” she suggests, “And plan family game nights.'
Jenn grew up in Penacook and always played sports such as soccer,
softball, and basketball. She likes to ski and kayak and has
recently taken up kick-boxing. She and her boxer dog, Zoe, hike and
camp together. She is also a favorite aunt for her brother’s three
children, with whom she spends a lot of time.

keep the pantry afloat. Thank you so much for your generosity.
The Monthly Veg
In September we will begin releasing “The Monthly Veg.” This

our website at loudonfoodpantry.org. If you want to receive your

This is considered our slow season. Donations are extremely slow to
come in and help replenish our food and funds. Even when donations
are low, we must find a way to feed those in need and pay ongoing
monthly bills. Please Help! It doesn’t matter the size of the
donation because in the end, it all adds up! Together we
can make a difference! Thank you for your continued support!
