My name is Meredith McCarthy and I’m so excited to be part of this wonderful school. I was one of the Reading Teachers at Potowmack Elementary before coming to Steuart Weller. Before becoming a Reading Specialist, I taught 2nd and 4th grade in Floral Park, New York. I was also an adjunct professor of Education at Pace University in NYC. It has been a privilege working with both children and adults.I graduated from Iona College with a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education in 1997. I received my Masters as a Reading Specialist from Teachers College, Columbia University, in 2000. Helping children learn to read has truly been a rewarding experience and I look forward to working with the students of Weller Elementary.
