Food for Thought

Food for Thought will contain articles about reading, writing, math, social emotional learning, student engagement and equity. The articles are current and directly relate to our work and the vision of Galway and MCPS. This site will give you a small glimpse in current issues and trends in education I believe are important to our students and families and to you. I hope you will find the articles relevant to the work you’re doing every day and it gives you a little food for thought.
