Ms. McCarthy

Welcome to

Physical Education


Ms. McCarthy has been teaching in School District 162 for 16 years. She has taught all grade levels, and elementary PE is her favorite. You might also see Ms. McCarthy outside holding the stop sign, feel free to wave or say hello :)

When she is not at school, you can find her at a few places.  After school, she is working out in her exercise room using the Peloton platform.  In the evening, she takes Coco, her English Bulldog, for long walks.  She also enjoys swimming, as she swam in college while attending Western Illinois University.

It is her goal to get your student active by introducing him/her/them to various sports, games, and activities throughout the school year in hopes of him/her/them developing a passion for leading an active lifestyle.
