Margaret Carroll

From teaching to volunteering with a little golf and travel thrown in...

Marg passed away on December 13, 2012. Obituary here.

I am a first-generation American, born of English/Irish parents, the youngest of three children. Both my parents were accountants.

I have an undergraduate degree in English Literature, a Masters Degree in Education and advanced graduate study in Administration.

Children were my first interest when I was deciding on a career. I truly enjoyed knowing and working with them. I taught all grades, K-8 with a concentration in Grade 7. I was an Assistant Principal and a Principal. Id do it again, despite all the changes and problems in education these days. Children are worth it.

Since my retirement Ive done some volunteer work, including tutoring ESL for Adults. mentoring new Principals, consulting work in Gifted Education and some educational consulting at the JFK Museum. I have been a CASA worker (Court Appointed Special Advocate) for abused and neglected children. At the present time I am involved with Rye Senior SERVE, a non-profit organization that addresses the issues and needs of Ryes elderly population.

My interests are people, golf, travel, community issues and politics.  After summering in Rye for many years, I have built a retirement home here, and it has been a very good move. Rye is a wonderful place to be.
