Mrs. Galloway's Social Studies Class

Welcome to 7th grade social studies at Lowndes Middle School! I'm thrilled to be working with your children this year. I've been teaching in Lowndes County Schools since 2005. I've taught on and off since 1982 after graduating from Middle Tennessee State University with a BS in Early Childhood Education. My career began here in Georgia at Cohutta Elementary School in Whitfield County. Since then I've taught in Virginia and Department of Defense Schools in Okinawa, Japan and London, England. I was an Air Force dependent for 29 years ending up here by way of Moody AFB in 2004. I earned my masters degree from VSU focusing on language arts in middle and secondary education. Social studies has been my favorite subject ever since I studied Marco Polo in the 3rd grade. I love teaching students about different countries, cultures, people, their governments, religions, and environmental issues.

I live with my husband and two furry children, Nadia (Siberian Husky) and Sadie Mae (lab mix). Our 3 children are grown so I am proof that you will survive being parents of middle school students.


Students are responsible for keeping up with assignments and due dates. LMS provides yearly planners with calendars that students may use to write down assignments, projects, and test due dates. I write my agenda on the board daily for students to copy, so they can keep up with what we do on a daily basis. Almost every assignment is posted in google classroom . If you ever want to look at what we are doing in google classroom, have your student log in and show you. Please check parent portal regularly as I post grades once a week if not more.

Contact information: The best time to reach me is during planning from 8:00-10:15..After 3:30, call LMS at 229-245-2280. If you prefer to email me contact me here at reneegalloway@lowndes.k12.ga.us. I get back to emails within 24 hours, but usually during the work day between 7:30-3:30. I will also answer text messages if you identify yourself and who your child is. My cell number is 229-269-9626. My reception is not always the strongest inside my classroom, so email is still your best bet for during the day.
