Ms. Colleen McGrath

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!

My name is Colleen McGrath and this is my fifth year teaching at R.C. Hill.  This is my second year in the cross-cat program and I am very excited!  Prior to my time in cross-cat, I taught mulit-needs here at R.C. Hill for three years.  I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and Psychology from Marquette University, as well as, a Master’s degree in Multicategorical Special Education. I am currently receiving an endorsement in ESL through St. Francis University.

I look forward to working with you and your child in reaching his or her full potential. We will have many wonderful experiences and opportunities to learn and grow in the days ahead!
