Ms. McCarthy


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!
