• Meet the Landmark Principal:

    Mrs. Carey

    Margaret Carey I grew up in Conneaut, Ohio,  a small town on Lake Erie, but I have also lived in Maine, New York, Mississippi and Wisconsin! I am so happy to be here in McHenry! My husband, Tim, and I live in town with our cat, Chester Cheetah. Our two adult sons, daughter-in-law and grandson all live in Illinois as well. In my free time, I enjoy reading, bicycling, traveling, weaving and doing genealogical research.

    Prior to becoming a principal, I taught a variety of grade levels, including kindergarten, first, fourth and eighth grades. I also used to coach youth, JV and varsity softball.

    This is my twentieth year as an elementary principal and my eleventh year here at Landmark.  Landmark School is a wonderful school, a school where all students are honored and valued as unique individuals and where parents and teachers have a true partnership in learning! I really feel like Landmark is my second home ~ and that you all are my second family!

     I am excited about working with our students, parents, and teachers this year as we all continue to grow and learn together!
