Mrs. Anya McCarthy

As a graduate of Plano ISD schools (Harrington Elementary, Carpenter Middle School, Clark HS, Plano East Senior High, and a proud IB graduate!), I am very familiar with Plano ISD's philosophy of education.  After PESH, I attended Austin College and received a Biochemistry Degree.  I have been teaching at Rice Middle School for 15 years.  Rice Middle School has been a great place for me -- in fact, I even met my husband here! -- so I am very grateful to be here.  My husband and I also have two fur babies - Colby Jack (dog) and Callie (cat).  I also have a classroom pet named Furball, and he's a hamster.
