Hello! My name is Matthew Towns. I teach 8th grade history at Douglas Middle School. This is my first year as an educator and I am thrilled to be part of the Douglas family. I graduated from Oneonta High School in 2009. After graduation, I attended Wallace State then Jacksonville State University where I graduated in 2014 with a degree in secondary education. I am the assistant 7th and 8th grade boys basketball coach at Douglas and I also help with baseball.
