I am Ms. McCarthy! This is my 6th year teaching at Leaphart. My first 3 years I spent in 3rd grade, moved up to 4th grade for a year and back to 3rd grade. I graduated from the University of South Carolina and actually did my student teaching here at Leaphart.
I am originally from New York and most of my family still lives up there. I live in Irmo with my son, RJ. He is in the 10th grade at Dutch Fork High School.
I love to read and to travel. My most favorite place to visit is Italy! The art there is amazing and I am an aspiring artist. I love to draw and paint. My favorite subject to teach is Social Studies and I get very excited about it, so watch out!
