Mrs. Mary Kay Kavanaugh » Welcome!


I am so excited to be your child's 5th grade teacher and am looking forward to working with you this year.  I know that we will have a great school year together!
This is my 20th year of teaching.  I received a B.S. in Environmental Science and Biology from the University of Dubuque.  I received my teaching certificate from Lewis University. I received my  M.S.Ed. in Instructional Technology from Northern Illinois University and my M.S.Ed in Educational Leadership from University of St.Francis. I am a National Board Certified Teacher. I previously taught science and computers at Somonauk Middle School.  I grew up in Marseilles and have taught here for five years.  It is wonderful being back in the building where I was a student!
I live in Marseilles with my husband and little Iggy, Piper.  I enjoy scrapbooking, stamping, cardmaking, walking, and riding my bike.
