Amy Gallie, Principal
Amy Gallie began her work as Trinity's principal in the summer of 2020. Currently in her fourth year, she likes to remind us that “she’s a senior now.” Ms. Gallie spent her childhood in Riverside and graduated from Nazareth Academy in 1988. She went on to study Latin American Studies and Spanish Language and Literature at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, graduating with a BA in 1992. After graduation, she wanted to deepen her knowledge of the language and culture of the Spanish-speaking world. Between 1993 and 2019 she lived abroad, in northern Spain and Mexico City, with a brief hiatus in the San Francisco Bay Area. In Mexico City, Ms. Gallie found her home at the American School Foundation, teaching high school English and Theory of Knowledge, acting as academic dean, and finally as principal, the last position which she held for seven years. In 2008 she received her MA in Education as part of an international cohort from SUNY Buffalo. She stepped away from education for a brief time to become a certified executive and life coach, and in 2016 opened AG Possibilities, a coaching and consulting firm. In the summer of 2019, Ms. Gallie moved back to the Chicagoland area to be close to her father, and to provide her two daughters with the advantages of a U.S. education. Ms. Gallie's grandmother (‘36), mother (‘60), and oldest daughter (‘23) are Trinity alumnae. Her youngest daughter will graduate in 2025.
