Special Education Resource Teacher

  • Welcome Parents and Students,

    Welcome to Ms. Cafferkey's webpage! This is my 24th year teaching elementary school special education and my sixth year at W. C. Petty School. I joined Petty from Oakland, where I taught for seven years. I currently teach Special Education Resource, grades two, three and four. 

    My teacher training includes a B.A. in Education from Eastern Illinois University and a Masters degree in Classroom Guidance and Counseling from Carthage College.  As a life long learner, I also have several post graduate credits. I live in Lake Villa with my two sons, ages seven and nine.  My interests include spending time with my family,  horse back riding, camping, scrapbooking and exercising. I like to relax with a good book in the evenings. I look forward to celebrating your accomplishments with you and your parents!  Please feel free to contact me at kcafferkey@antioch34.com. You can also reach me by phone at 847-838-8117


    Ms. Kate Cafferkey
