Welcome to First Grade

Hello! I am so excited to be your child’s teacher this coming school year. My name is Galene SanRomani. I have lived in Kingman for 35 years. I grew up in Alta Vista, Kansas a small town near Council Grove. I have been a teacher since 1980. I retired from public school and became a para at St. Patrick’s and then was encouraged to seek the 1st grade job when it became open. I am married to Dennis who works at Farrar Corp. in Norwich.

I have two grown sons that are both teachers and coaches. Dustin lives in Council Grove. He teaches 2nd grade and coaches football, basketball and softball. He is married to Cami and she operates a cake business from their home.  They have three children. Declan is 6 and in 1st grade. Collison is 4 and in preschool. Baker will soon turn 2 years and he helps everyone. Darrin lives in Kingman and will be the Fairfield Elementary School principal this coming year. He will not be coaching for the first time in over 10 years. He is married to Emily who is a nurse at the local hospital. They have two children. Finley is 4 and attends preschool at St. Patrick’s. Jace will turn one in September.
