Mrs Eggleston (aka Mrs. E)
This will be Mrs. E's eighth year at McCord. She loves getting to work with middle school students - it is such a fun age!! She is very excited to have 6th graders McCord because this will give her more time to get to know your students. Mrs. E is the proud mom of a sophomore at the University of Cincinnati and a senior in Olentangy. When she is not at McCord, she enjoys spending time with her family either outdoors or hanging out and watching a movie.Cathy Eggleston:
