The Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) Superintendent of Schools, Mohammed Choudhury, visited Garrett County Public Schools (GCPS) recently. During his visit, he shadowed a Northern Garrett High student, Kambria Kyle; Northern Garrett Middle Principal, David Yoder; and GCPS Superintendent, Barbara Baker, during her visits to Grantsville and Route 40 Elementary Schools.
Superintendent Choudhury spent his day shadowing different aspects of the GCPS system. He was able to observe first-hand what a day in the life of a student, principal, and superintendent looks like. He began his day shadowing a student in two of her classes and learning about the JROTC program at the school. While at Northern Garrett Middle, he took part in a presentation and hands-on demonstration from robotics Team 40 North as they presented one of their Waypoint lessons to him. During his stop at Grantsville Elementary, he read to a Pre-K class in the media center, as part of Dr. Seuss’ Birthday and Read Across America Day. While at Route 40 Elementary, he toured the school and observed a couple of classroom activities.
This marks Superintendent Choudhury’s second visit to GCPS since his term began in July 2021. GCPS was honored to host the Superintendent for the day.
