    Teaching isn't my job, it's my passion!
     Mrs. McCarthy
    After earning my
    Bachelor's Degree in Elementary/Early Childhood Education from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania, I began my teaching career in the suburbs of Cleveland, Ohio.
      During that time, I also earned my Master's Degree in Curriculum/Instruction and Literacy Development with a Reading Endorsement from Cleveland State University.  In 2005, Upper St. Clair offered me the opportunity to return home to Pittsburgh, and it has been my pleasure to teach here at Baker ever since! 
    My husband and I have two children.  Collin is in 10th grade, and Kayla is in 8th grade this year.  Being a working mom definitely has its challenges, but it allows me to have the best of both worlds--a beautiful family and a career I love!  And so, I know how precious your children are to you.  I will take care of your child this year as if he/she is my own!  
    Fun Facts:
    I am an identical twin. (Watch out--you may run into her around town. Many people do!) 
    I have competed in 7 triathlons.
    My family was once pictured on the cover of the USC Rec Center's Fall/Winter Guide.
    This is my 23rd year of teaching!
