A native San Franciscan, Mr. Callaghan happily returns to Riordan's Lindland theatre where he performed as an 8th grade student when the school needed a young boy for its spring musical. Mr. Callaghan is a graduate of St. Cecilia's and Saint Ignatius. He holds a B.A. in Theatre Arts and an M.A. in Interdisciplinary Education with an emphasis on Teaching and Learning With Technology from Santa Clara University. Mr. Callaghan has a diverse background in theatre and education; he has worked at Tony award winning Theatre companies, managed a scholarship for undocumented students at SCU, and most recently served as the Director of Student Activities at ICA Cristo Rey.

Personal teaching philosophy: I help students develop their individual voices, the confidence to express them, and the empathy to understand their impact onstage, offstage, and in the classroom. I am responsible for building relationships and a classroom culture that encourages students to make mistakes, reflect, and learn from and with each other
