Ms. Carol McCarthy

Hi, welcome to my page! My name is Carol McCarthy and I have the pleasure of teaching 3rd grade students this year at Gages Lake School. I have 26 years of teaching experience, 21 years having been at various schools in SEDOL. This is my 4th year at Gages Lake and before that I was the Literacy coach as Sally Potter Elementary. I have a BS degree in Special Education from Illinois State and a Masters Degree in Reading at Northeastern University. I am married with two children in their 30's, and both are in the education field. 


I have always known that I wanted to work with children and I am fortunate to love my job. I work with an amazing team. Mr. Rodriguez is our Para-Professional in the classroom, Ms. Lapin is our Social Worker, Ms. Joseph is our Speech Therapist and Ms. Michna is our OT. I believe in having good communication between home and school, and feel this is an essential compinent to the success of your child. Please feel free to email or call me with any questions or concerns. Together we can make this a great year.
