I was born on March 29, 1980. My parents are Donna and Lewis Gambale whom I love dearly. I have a wonderful husband named Dave and two beautiful daughters named Abby and Allie. I also have two loving and kind brothers. My oldest brother Kevin lives in California with his wife Whitney and my niece Paige. My younger brother Scott lives in Beverly with his wife Caity, my nephew Scotty and my niece Mia. We grew up in North Beverly and we all went to the North Beverly School.
I enjoyed many sports such as soccer, softball and cheerleading through elementary school. I was also a Brownie and a Girl Scout. I played sports at Memorial Middle School as well and I had a paper route.
I entered Beverly High School and was on the honor roll while playing softball and cheerleading for both football and basketball. I graduated high school with some scholarships and decided to attend Westfield State College. I graduated with a degree in Elementary Education and Psychology.
I then began substitute teaching and soon was hired to teach fourth grade. I taught fourth grade for one year before being moved to teach third grade. I have been teaching third grade ever since. While teaching third grade, I went to Salem State College and received my master's degree in Special Education. I love teaching and working with kids. I love my career as a teaching and I am looking forward to a great year!
