Biographical Information

As principal of Berlin High School in Berlin, Thomas F. Galvin has created an atmosphere at his school that encourages teachers and students to have a mutually supportive way of dealing with each other. Mr. Galvin is responsible for the implementation of several successful programs designed to deliver firm academic support. These have included a program that integrates special education students into mainstream classes and an alternative high school program for students having difficulty in the traditional school setting. In an effort to develop a more effective and integrated health education program, Mr. Galvin secured a Department of Education grant to restructure the existing program. Working with teachers, counselors, parents and members of the police department, Mr. Galvin has established a program for the early prevention of drug and alcohol abuse.
