About Principal McCarthy

I am excited to begin my third year as principal at Lakeview Elementary School and Woodbury Elementary School! As principal, I value our student-centered learning environment and our ability to work collaboratively with families and community partners to enrich our educational environment. I have a Master’s Degree in Education and have worked in public education since 2000 in many roles. I am excited to continue to foster a collaborative and distributive leadership style at Woodbury Elementary School to support students, teachers and families in creating a vibrant learning community.
I was born and raised in central Vermont and am now enjoying watching my own children grow up in this area. When not at school, I enjoy spending time with my many animals (horses, chickens and three dogs), as well as taking advantage of the outdoors. Hiking, skiing and spending time on the water are a few of the activities I enjoy.

Woodbury Elementary School is located in a unique and special part of Vermont. As a school, we value place-based learning and our community partnerships. We seek to incorporate these components into our curriculum whenever we can. We pride ourselves in our ability to truly know each and every student and it is our mission to ensure that all students in our school are able to show growth in academic and social/emotional areas. All students who enter our doors are welcomed and appreciated for the unique qualities they bring to our learning community. We look forward to an amazing 2023-2024 school year!
