Hello, my name is Mr. McCarthy and I am beginning my 16th year of teaching Physical Education. My first 3 years of teaching Physical Education were at K-8 schools in Minneapolis MN. This will be my 13th year of teaching at Meadowview Elementary in Farmington MN.
I live in Prior Lake with my beautiful wife (Teresa) and 2 awesome boys (Jameson & Paxton)!
In addition to teaching Physical Education to your children, I am honored to serve as a board member of MN SHAPE, MN Healthy Kids Coalition and on the SHAPE America Central District Leadership Council.
I coach boys Cross Country and boys Track at Prior Lake High School.
I'm looking forward to inspiring your kids to love being physically active, enhancing their knowledge, skills and confidence to a lifetime of purposeful movement.
My Teaching Philosophy To teach is to touch the lives of many and to help us learn life's lessons. But to teach well is to make a difference in all the lives you touch.
