Ulysses Gallman Spins at Cru Club



So you want to be a DJ? Middle school Crusaders at Saturday Cru Club got a treat last weekend when professional DJ and award-winning science teacher Ulysses Gallman came to visit. He brought all his DJ gear – mixers, turntables, CD players, speakers, and microphones – and he even set up a light show in the classroom! He explained the difference between club jocks, street jocks, and radio jocks and described how DJs learn their craft over long years of practice.

Mr. Gallman’s main message to Crusaders was to always make options for yourself. He talked about discovering his interest in math and science as a youth and the years he spent teaching science in the Narragansett schools. (He earned two Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching and was honored with a national Milken Educator Award in 2001.) He shared with Crusaders how he combined his love for teaching with his love for music by setting priorities and striving for success in everything he did. Then he showed them how to scratch records!

Thanks to Mr. Gallman for bringing all his cool equipment and talking with Crusaders about his two careers!
