5th Grade Mary McCarthy


I am Mary McCarthy, and I teach 5th grade at Northeast! I graduated from Iowa State University in 2015, and received my Master’s Degree from Buena Vista University in 2018. My teaching career started in the Pleasant Valley Community School District in Bettendorf, Iowa. I taught three years of 5th grade there. I then moved to Ankeny and will be starting my third year at Northeast this coming school year!

At home, I live with my husband, Ryan, and our three daughters; Layna is a 5th grader at Crocker, Shay (2), and Nora (1). We also have a dog named Leia. In my free time I love to read, run, bike, and be with my family. We spend a lot of time together playing games!

I am so excited to start this school year and to do what I love – teach and LEARN! Please let me know if you have any questions!
