Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Troy Galloway
Before you move to my Weebly site, I just wanted to mention a few things about myself. I've taught at Riverwood Middle School for what feels like forever some days. In fact, I believe there are three teachers at school that I taught at one time or another (Oh no)! I'm one of the few holdouts that have been here since day one and it's been a pleasure teaching the students and working with the parents in our community.
I no longer teach Microsoft Applications which sometimes makes me sad. Those classes were very enjoyable but now I have the pleasure of being one of the few teachers in Johnston County that teaches Computer Science to middle school students!! Go Ravens!
Please take look to the side and click on the website to go to my Weebly Website!
As always, if you have any questions please let me know and I will get back to you ASAP!

Our district is launching a new portion of our website to further communicate bus delays and replacements with our families. We encourage those who have a student who utilizes our transportation to get to or from school to visit www.johnston.k12.nc.us/busdelays for updates on our school bus routes beginning Tuesday, January 18.
North Carolina schools are required to administer ACCESS for ELLs 2.0 to all students identified as English Learners (ELs) in the spring of each year to determine their progress in learning English. Each student is tested in four areas: Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing. This assessment helps us monitor their English language development.
Our district is continuing to follow the guidance and recommendations from the Johnston County Public Health Department, the CDC, and the Strong Schools NC Toolkit, and we will now adhere to a 5 day quarantine period for students or staff members who tests positive for COVID-19. This is a change from the previous 10 day quarantine time.
Johnston County Public Schools is participating in the Test to Stay Program, a voluntary study with Duke University and the ABC Collaborative. Due to that participation our students now have more options if they are deemed a close contact to a positive COVID-19 case while at school.
The Johnston County Board of Education voted unanimously to approve the 2022 Johnston County Public Schools salary schedule at their regularly scheduled Dec. 14 meeting.
