•                  Welcome to Ms. Cahill's class!
     
     
    I am excited to work with you and your child this year! I know we are going to have an amazing year together. To tell you a little about myself, I graduated from Radford University with a Master's degree in Early Childhood Education. This is my sixth year at Carver and I have loved every minute! I have a sweet dog named Abby who is spoiled rotten. I love coffee, shopping, and watching sports. I look forward to meeting you and your child and forming a relationship with both of you. :)
