• Hello & Welcome to Ms. McCarthy's Teacher Page!

    On this site, please find codes for each class period's Google Classroom account. Classwork, homework, study materials, and reminders will be available on Google Classroom. 

    This is my 4th year at Peekskill High School. I earned my Bachelor's Degree and Master's Degree from SUNY Cortland before teaching here. 

    If you need any extra help, you can find me in room 225 during periods 1, 2, and 9. I am in room 209 during periods 3 and 7. I am also available for callback every day in 225 from 2:46-3:00, although I usually stay later than that. 

    Ms. Mannion and I are this year's freshman class advisors. I am also the advisor this year for Yearbook along with Ms. Mannion, and I am the advisor for National Social Studies Honor Society with Ms. Rodriguez. For more information on these, please visit the Google Classroom sites. The codes are listed below.

    If you need to reach me, feel free to email me at mmccarthy@peekskillschools.org. You may also call the school at (914) 737-0201.

    Social Studies Department Homework Policy Rationale: 


    Homework helps students by complementing and reinforcing classroom learning, fostering good lifelong learning and study habits, and providing an opportunity for students to be responsible for their own learning. Regular homework contributes to the development of sound study habits and self-responsibility in children. It is a valuable means of fostering understanding and it serves as a communication link between school and home that shows parents what children are learning.
