Tammi Galloway, Three-Year-Old Preschool Teacher:
Tammi began her professional life in 1996 as a licensed vocational nurse taking care of children with special needs and those who survived catastrophic injuries. She then ran her own licensed daycare in Los Angeles, CA, until relocating to Godfrey, IL, in 2004. Between her career as a nurse, “playing teacher” as a kid, and homeschooling five of her six children, Tammi has always been passionate about caring for and teaching others. Returning to school to further her education was one of the best decisions she ever made; she is currently pursuing her Associate of Arts degree at Lewis and Clark Community College and her Bachelor’s degree in Human Services/Early Childhood Development at Missouri Baptist University. A faithful Christian who aims to live a God-first life, Tammi is honored to serve at Faith and to be a part of positively impacting young children’s lives during the early stages of their growth and development.
