Mrs. McCarthy

Mrs. Emily McCarthyMrs. Emily McCarthy teaches fourth grade here at St. Katharine Drexel School. She has been with SKDS since 1992. Prior to her service here, Mrs. McCarthy taught for four years at St. James Catholic School in Washington, Iowa (grades 4, 5 and 6) and for four years at Washington School in Waupun, Wis. (grades 5 and 6).

When asked why she became a teacher, Mrs. McCarthy replied, “I have always enjoyed working with children. They are enthusiastic and eager to learn new things. It is so neat to watch them grow and mature.”

There are many things Mrs. McCarthy likes about being a teacher. She said, “I love the students, they make my job fun. We have a very dedicated staff at SKDS, who are always there when you need them. The SKDS families are also so supportive of the school. I enjoy coming to work!”

Mrs. McCarthy grew up in Freeport, Illinois in a family of 15 children (11 girls and 4 boys). She and all her siblings attended Catholic grade school and high school.

Mrs. McCarthy and her husband Todd have three children: Eric (Tammi), Erin (Luke), and Briana (Damien). She has one granddaughter, Kenadie, and seven step grandchildren. All of their children attended school here from preschool through eighth grade. In her free time, Mrs. McCarthy enjoys walking, biking, exercising, reading, gardening and working in the yard. She also enjoys watching sporting events.

Mrs. McCarthy’s words of advice for students: “Never give up. You can be whatever you would like to be if you work for it.”

Her favorite quotation: “When you believe in yourself, anything is possible.”
