Welcome to Clark Davidson School.
My name is Matt Cavanaugh and the 2017-18 school year will be my first year as the principal at Clark Davidson School. I have had the privilege of being affiliated with the Goddard School District for over twenty years. I graduated in 2004 from Goddard High School after attending Goddard Schools from Kindergarten through my senior year. I began teaching in Goddard when Apollo Elementary opened in 2010 and taught 4th grade at Apollo Elementary for five years. I spent the previous two school years at Eisenhower Middle School as the assistant principal and athletic director.
I attended both the University of Kansas and Wichita State University for my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. I completed my master's in education administration in 2015 from Emporia State University.
My wife, Sally, and I have a daughter (Caroline), son (Harrison) and chocolate lab (Milo). Getting the chance to spend time with family is how I spend my down time.
In addition to hanging out with family, I’m an avid reader (particularly history) and watching sports. My favorite teams are KU, Chicago Cubs, Notre Dame and the Seattle Seahawks.
I’m looking forward to a great school year and being a part of the CDS family.
