Mr. James McCarthy

I graduated Southern Methodist University in 2002 with a degree in Political Science.  I was also a four-year letterman and three-year team captain of the SMU Mustangs football team.  I began teaching at Rice Middle School in 2005 and currently teach Technology, Engineering, Computer Science, and Socials Studies classes to 7th and 8th grade students.  My wonderful wife, Anya McCarthy, is also an educator at Rice and currently specializes in teaching 6th grade Social Studies and PACE.  Since 2016, Mrs. McCarthy and I have coached the Rice Middle School First Tech Challenge Robotics Competition Team #11472 Ravenclaw Robotcs, and have mentored the Rice First Lego League Robotics Competition Team.  We have a dog named Colby Jack, and a cat named Callie.  We enjoy traveling, fishing and 3D printing.
