Mr. William McCarthy

I have been teaching for over 25 years. I began my career teaching in the San Francisco Archdiocese, two years at St. Gabriel and four years at St. Stephen. I then taught for 17 years in the Millbrae School District, five years at Green Hills Elementary and twelve years at Taylor Middle School where I retired from in 2017. After a couple of years of traveling, I missed being in the classroom so in 2018 I started subbing for Livermore Joint Unified School District. In 2019, I got a position teaching once a week at Pleasanton Middle School and this will be my first year at Vineyard Alternative School.

When I am not teaching I enjoy traveling, photography and coaching basketball. I have been coaching over 30 years, mostly at the middle school level, but I did coach for a combined 10 years at Archbiship Riordan High School and St. Ignatius College Prep in the very competitive West Catholic Athletic League. Most recently I coached 7th grade Boy's basketball at Joe Michel School where we made it to the championship game.
