Ms. Kara McCoy

I am so excited to join the Shortridge community this school year as a social worker. I have been working in the child welfare sector here in Indianapolis for the past two years, and enjoy working with families. Personal passions include advocating for accessible health care, strengthened community resources, and equitable community policies.  I am eager to assist my scholars and their families to reach their best potential through the connection of school, the community, and home life.

Raised in northern Indiana, I enjoy exploring new areas in the central part of the state. My favorite spot is Brown County State Park. I especially like any activity in the outdoors, such as hiking and camping. I spend a lot of my personal time meeting up with friends for brunch, watching the newest Netflix original, and visiting family members. As a dog mom, I enjoy taking my lab-schnauzer mix, Rocky for walks. I am so excited to work together this school year, please come and say hi to me when you are in the building!
