Hi, my name is Lynnsey McGarrh.  At IVLA, I currently teach High School Social Studies and many different electives! I am also a Success Coach.

Though I now call Lexington, Kentucky home, I was born and raised in Henderson; a small town in western Kentucky located along the Ohio River. In 2006, I graduated from Murray State University with my bachelor’s degree in History and International Affairs. In 2007, I joined the United States Peace Corps. For two years, I lived and worked in Quito, Ecuador as a volunteer. It was an experience that will stay with me forever and helped motivate me to return to the United States and become a teacher! In 2012, I graduated from Saint Joseph’s University with my master’s degree in Secondary Education!

In my free time, I love to travel, read, listen to music, and spend time with my family! I love to experience new cultures, different types of food, and meet all types of people from all walks of life.
