My name is Mandi Vander Galien, and I have been married to Jeremy for 22 years. We have eight delightful children and two grandchildren. God has blessed us beyond measure. My love for teaching began when I was very little when I taught anything and everything to my imaginary students. That love grew through my high school and college years leading me to pursue a degree in elementary education from UW-La Crosse. After five years in the classroom, I resigned to begin raising and teaching my kids at home. Whether it was teaching in a brick and mortar school or teaching my kids at home, I was thrilled with the God-given task of helping students reach their greatest, God-given potential. In my spare time, I enjoy all things sports (especially the Brewers and Hoosiers), digging in my perennial gardens, hospitality, and going on as many family trips as possible.
