• 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. 

    It is my hope that students arrive to class on time, prepared, & ready to respectfully engage in each day's lesson with me & with classmates.

    This is my 7th 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 send me an email anytime.

    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.
