Hello! My name is Leah Carter and I am thrilled to be starting my 7th year at O. A. Thorp! This will be my 6th year on the 5th/6th grade team. I am a born and raised Chicagoan and a product of CPS Elementary and High Schools. I chose to go to North Park University and earned a Bachelors Degree in Counseling and Social Services. I continued my education there and earned a Masters Degree in Elementary Education with certifications in Special Education and English as a Second Language. I love learning new things, so I am lucky because the kids teach me new stuff all the time. When I am not at school, I am busy with my husband, two kids (12th and 9th grades!) and our CRAZY dog. We love to spend time on the water, watching movies together and goofing around outdoors. This year will fly by for all of us. Enjoy it, work hard, keep your chin up and when in doubt choose kind.
