Welcome Students and Families!

    My name is Bridget McCarthy (formerly Hilgeman) and I am excited to be your child's teacher this year. This is my second year in 2nd Grade although I have been a member of the Kennard Family for many years.  My son Will attended Kennard (an incoming Freshman at U. of MO S & T at Rolla) and I was previously the library aide here while earning my Master's .


    This is my 20st year of teaching and my 12th in SLPS. I recieved my Bachleor's in English Literature at Webster University, my Master's in Library at Lindenwood and am certified in Early Childhood, Language Arts, and English. 


    I really enjoy this grade level, and I am looking forward to teaching your child and creating a community of learners.
