Mr. Michael McCue - Art

My name is Michael McCue and I am thrilled to be the new art teacher at Stough for the 2018-2019 school year as I begin my fourth year teaching. I am originally from Long Island, New York, where I received both my bachelor's and master's in Art Education K-12. I relocated to Wake County in 2015 where I taught at East Garner Elementary for three years. 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 critical and creative thinking through a strong art education.

Ms. 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 18 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.  


In our personal life, my husband and I seem to spend more time than we would choose visiting historic sites (especially Civil War sites!) with our 6th grade son.  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 making cards and scrapbook pages with stamps, ink and lots of pretty paper.

Ms. Katherine Kennedy - Music

My name is Kate Kennedy, and I am the new Music Teacher at Stough Elementary! I have been teaching music three years, but this is my first year teaching at Stough. I graduated from Appalachian State University with a B.A. in General Music Education and a minor in Special Education. Although I am originally from North Carolina, I spent the past three years teaching in California. I am so happy to be back in my home state! I look forward to encouraging your student(s) to explore music through a global lens in a collaborative, creative, and nurturing environment. It is going to be a great year!

Mr. Mathew Hooker - PE

My name is Mathew Hooker and I have been teaching Elementary PE for the last 17 years. I have been at Stough for 12 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, an M.Ed in Exercise Science, and currently hold a K-12 Physical Education License.

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.
