Mr. Michael McCue - Art

My name is Michael McCue and this is my fifth year teaching elementary art and my second year as a Stough Stallion.  I am originally from Long Island, New York, where I received both my bachelor's and master's in Art Education K-12 before I relocated to Wake County in 2015. I am loving being a North Carolinian, and most importantly, educating the future! My goal is for students to impress themselves with what they can create as I mentor them to uncover their hidden talents. I would like students to enjoy creating artwork as much as I enjoy teaching it. I look forward to a successful year of having our students enhance their creative thinking through a strong art education.

Mrs. Amy Galvan - Media

I grew up in eastern North Carolina.  I graduated from Meredith College with a B.A. in English and from NCCU with a Master of Library Science degree.  I have been Library Media Coordinator at Stough for 20 years.  I also have experience teaching high school English and middle school language arts and math (yes, math!).   I love to read, and I hope to share my love for reading with my students.  I also enjoy the quest for information.  I strive to help my students learn where to search for and find reliable information when they need it.  


My husband and I stay busy driving our eighth grade son to youth group activities, band concerts, Battle of the Books practices and the other things that are part of middle school life.  I enjoy music, so I sing alto in the church choir, play in the handbell group, and work with one of the children’s choirs at church.  When I get a free moment at home, I love to spend time creating cards and scrapbook pages.   I recently started to crochet, but I am still a novice at that!

I look forward to encouraging your student(s) to explore music through a global lens in a collaborative, creative, and nurturing environment. We will sing, move, play instruments, and perform at school events throughout the year.

Mr. Mathew Hooker - PE

My name is Mathew Hooker and I have been teaching Elementary PE for the last 19 years.  I have been at Stough for 14 years.  I am originally from England, but I was recruited in 1993 to play soccer for Campbell University where I received a B.S. in Sports Management and an M.Ed in Exercise Science.  I am licensed in K-12 Physical Education with National Board Certification.  

My goal for your child is to provide a quality Physical Education program so that all students develop healthy living habits in a comfortable, safe, and fun environment.  This is accomplished by following the NC Essential Standards for Healthful Living and providing many opportunities for your child to succeed during PE activities.
