About Ms. Cafferkey

  • Welcome Parents and Students,

    Welcome to Ms. Cafferkey's webpage! This is my 26th year teaching elementary school special education and my ninth year at W. C. Petty School. I joined Petty from Oakland, where I taught for six years. I currently teach Special Education Resource, grades Kindergarten, first, third and fifth. 

    My teacher training includes a B.A. in Education from Eastern Illinois University and a Masters degree in Classroom Guidance and Counseling from Carthage College.  As a life long learner, I also have several post graduate credits. I live in Lake Villa with my two sons, ten nine and twelve.  My interests include spending time with my family, horse back riding, camping and exercising. I like to relax with a good book in the evenings. I look forward to celebrating your accomplishments with you and your parents! 

    Sincerely,

    Ms. Cafferkey
