Mrs McCarty

Welcome to my web page!  My name is Denise McCarty.  I have taught at Central Lyon since 2011.  I graduated from Luther College in 2007 and taught in Northeast Iowa before coming here.  I have had experience teaching preschool - 2nd graders.  In my free time, I enjoy camping, traveling, and reading.  

I am very excited to be teaching preschool!   I believe in the importance of teaching through structured play and providing many hands-on learning experiences in my classroom.

On this site you will find classroom updates, how to contact me, and weekly newsletters!
