• 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 sixth year teaching, second at Southwest. 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, and our two very spoiled dogs, Bailey and Zoey.  We added a very special someone to our family on December 1st of last year, Lily Jane.  Lily is really starting to show her personality, dancing, smiling, talking, giggling, army crawling all over the place, and getting into things she shouldn't :)  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. This brochure is a guide to understanding what to expect. If you have any questions or concerns, please call me at 819-2992 or email me at: mcdonom@gcsnc.com
