Mrs. Houlihan's Bio

  • I grew up in Western New York in a small town called Oakfield.  I earned my Bachelors at Buffalo State College and my Masters at Walden University.  I have always wanted to be a teacher and began teaching in Berkeley, California.  Once I moved back to New York I was hired at Gates Chili.  I have been teaching for fifteen years and this is my eleventh year at Gates Chili High School.  I have been a Consultant Teacher for English classes for ten years now. 

    I live in Chili with my husband, three daughters, dog and cat.  My daughters, Annabelle, 9, and Gwendolyn, 6,  and Penelope, 4, keep me very busy.  In my spare time I enjoy walking, playing games, hula hooping, spending time with friends, and creating. 

    Now that you know a little about me, I look forward to getting to know you throughout the school year!
