School Announcements

  • Seasoned Educator Michael Galland Recommended to Serve as Principal of Columbus Elementary School

    The City School District of New Rochelle Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian G. Osborne announced today that he will recommend the appointment of Michael Galland as principal of Columbus Elementary School to the Board of Education at the Board’s Annual Organizational Meeting on Tuesday, July 5. 

    “Mr. Galland is an exceptional leader in our schools,” stated Dr. Osborne.  “His proven track record of success makes him ideally suited for this position at this time. Every Columbus student, teacher, and family will benefit from his leadership.”

    Galland has served New Rochelle Schools for 18 years, most recently as principal of the George M. Davis, Jr. Elementary School, a position held since 2013.  Prior to this, Galland served as Assistant Principal for Columbus. For nearly a decade, he led the Math and Technology department at Isaac E. Young Middle School (2003-2011).  His roots in the district were planted at Columbus Elementary School in 1998 when he joined Columbus as a 3rd and 4th grade teacher.

    Galland shared, “I have been honored to work at Davis among so many fully devoted teachers and families.  I am now grateful for the opportunity to rejoin an exceptional and vibrant Columbus school community.”

    As a graduate of Tufts University and Harvard University Graduate School of Education, Galland is credited with successfully leading Davis staff in adopting a new and innovative reading and writing workshop curricula. He’s also overseen efforts across the district to create a blended, constructivist-based mathematics curriculum supporting Common Core Learning Standards.   

    Galland, 46, is bilingual in Spanish and English. He is married and has three young children. His wife, Milagro Galland, is a 2nd grade teacher at Jefferson Elementary School, also in New Rochelle. 

    Interviews for the Davis principal position will take place the week of July 4th.  Resumes have already been vetted, and 10-12 candidates are expected to receive in-person interviews.
