My Classroom Website

Mrs. Gahan's 4th Grade Website

Hello and welcome to my first attempt at a website.  I hope to use this to communicate with you during the year.  It will hopefully have my monthly newsletters, calendar of events, and homework for you to check.  I am also hoping to include website for you to use at home to help with your child's learning.

 About Mrs. Gahan

I am an Iowa City native along with my husband, Andy.  Andy is a 4th grade teacher at Coralville Central and coaches baseball and football.  We have three beautiful daughters.  Their names are Elly (9), Annie (8), and Natalie (4).  Elly is in fourth grade this year, Annie is in 3rd and Natalie as one more year of preschool before starting kindergarten.  In my free time I like to go to Iowa sporting events.  I also like to golf and play volleyball as well as go for long walks with my ipod. 

This is my 12th year of teaching and my 11th at Kirkwood.  I love being a Kirkwood Eagle and cannot see myself anywhere else!  I teach the Science curriculum for 4th grade and Mrs. Watts teaches Social Studies.  We do a lot of team teaching so you will have both of us during the year. 

If you need to reach me you can email me any time at or you can reach me at school between 8:00 and 4:00.  The school number is 688-1120.
