Food For Thought

Food for Thought contains articles about reading, writing, math, social emotional learning, student engagement and equity. 

The articles are current and they directly relate to the work and vision of both Galway and MCPS as a whole. The links below will provide a small glimpse in current issues and trends in education which I believe are important to our students, families, and teachers. 

I hope you will find the articles relevant to the work you’re doing every day as a parent, a teacher, and even as a student. I hope they give you a little food for thought.
