Michael Callahan is the new fourth grade teacher at FGS. He grew up in Hoopeston, IL.  After attending Danville Community College for a year, Michael joined the National Guard.  This keeps him busy on the weekends and throughout the summer! He is a sergeant who specializes in motor transport, in particular medium to large military vehicles.  He graduated from Eastern Illinois University.  He brings his military background to the classroom by expecting straight, quiet lines and expects a lot from his students.  He always knew he wanted to be a teacher.  He remembers the lack of male teachers in his grade school and wanting to be a positive male role model.  Michael's favorite part of teaching is that each and every day is a new adventure.  He enjoys playing and watching sports in his spare time.
