Mr. Michael McGovern

I have had the priviledge of teaching children in The School District of Philadelphia, Neptune Township School District, and now here in Pemberton Township for the last seven years.

I am a highly qualified teacher k-12 in both Language Arts and Social Studies. 

The 6th grade Social Studies curriculum is an interesting one. It focuses on ancient cultures such as Egypt, Greece and Rome. Our students are facinated by these civilizations and are eager to learn more about them. Accordingly, the Social Studies department at Newcomb Middle School is dedicated to providing students with an environment where they can learn, read, discover, create and collaborate with one another.
