About the Teacher and Class Mission



    HI!!  I am Mrs. McDonough and I will be teaching 2nd Grade this year!  I graduated from Penn State and have been teaching for 16 years at Sheckler.  Prior to coming to 2nd grade, I taught Technology, 4th grade, and 3rd grade at Sheckler and was a first grade teacher at Holy Family School in Nazareth, PA.

    Along with teaching I use to coach basketball. I was the JV Girls/Assistant Varsity 
    Basketball Coach for Catasuaqua High School. It was a lot of fun filled years! I also coached my 
    little sister's team at Our Lady of Perpetual Help for 4 years.  I truly enjoy sports and coaching! 

    At home I live with my husband, my 5 year old son Cullen, and my 3 year old son, Maddox.  

    "I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells.  Fantasy is a necessary
    ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of
    a telescope.  Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's
    realities." ~ Dr. Seuss



    My mission for this class is to always strive to do your best. I believe that if we try "to be the best we can be" everyday, we are going to accomplish many things we set out to do!

    "Every child has value and boundless potential and that even if all one has to give is an encouraging word as a genuine gesture of care... that gift alone can save a child's life and give hope for the future." ~ Antwone Fisher
