Students focus on research and writing informational and narrative text. Students learn to be critical thinkers through productive struggle and discourse in math. Students engage in making authentic products in math, science, and language arts.
Mrs. McCarty is a fun and energetic woman who loves to spend time outside. When she sets her mind to something nothing will stand in her way. She is determined, dedicated, and motivated in all that she sets out to do. She recently finished her degree through Western Governors University and received her degree in Bachelor of Arts in Education. Because of her can-do attitude, she was able to complete her entire degree in less than 2 years.
Mrs. McCarty married the love of her life, her high school sweetheart three months after she graduated. They have been blessed with two wonderfully wild and rambunctious boys. When not working Mrs. McCarty enjoys being outside and in the water. Her favorite place in the world is sitting on the beach with her toes in the sand. You can sometimes catch Mrs. McCarty at the theater both watching and performing as this has become a new and exciting adventure for her to embark upon. She was last seen in Ensemble for The Little Mermaid at Heritage Theater in Perry Utah and as Widow Corney in Oliver at the Heritage Theater as well.
Mrs. McCarty is excited about this new adventure and is looking forward to meeting and working with everyone at Greenwood.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
