Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Galvin

I am Gretchen Galvin.  I was born and raised in Michigan- Go Spartans!  I went to Central Michigan University where I got my degree in Sports Medicine and Exercise Science.  I went onto become a Certified Athletic Trainer.  Two years after my undergrad, I got my Masters in Health Administration.  My teaching career started after my undergrad when I started substitute teaching while being the athletic trainer for a local high school.  Eventually I went back to school to get my Masters in Elementary Education K-6 from UNCW.  This is my sixth year teaching at Dixon Middle School.

I am married to a Marine and we have 2 boys, Hunter and Brody, both attend college at Central Michigan University.  We have been stationed in Hawaii, Michigan, California, Okinawa Japan, Virginia, and now North Carolina.  I love watching my Spartans and Chippewas on TV and going up to our lake cottage in Michigan during the summer.
