• My name is Matthew McDonough and I would like to take this opportunity to welcome your child to the second grade. I am looking forward to an exciting new year!

    This is my seventh year teaching, third at Southwest. I graduated from University of North Carolina at Greensboro in 2013 with a Degree in Elementary Education.  I grew up on the Jersey Shore in Rumson, NJ.  I have lived all over the country; from New Jersey to Florida, to California, and finally in North Carolina. I live in High Point with my wife Melissa, who is also a teacher, our daughter Lily (turns 2 on December 1), and our two very spoiled dogs, Bailey and Zoey.  I am really excited to get to know everyone this year in room 205. 

    In my classroom your child will engage in many rigorous and engaging learning activities in all subjects throughout the year. You can find a copy of the homework sheet on this website and I will have links to the websites that you can use at home to further your child's education. If you have any questions or concerns, please call me at 819-2992 or email me at: mcdonom@gcsnc.com
