Hi! My name is Matthew Hegarty. I am the homeroom teacher for Room 5-10. I teach our fifth-grade students Science and Social Studies here at St. Thomas, and I am also the Religion teacher for grades 5, 6, and 7.

Catholicism is an important part of my life and I am overjoyed to be able to give back what I have learned from Catholic education. As a kid, I attended Holy Name School and Cathedral High School in Springfield, MA. I was blessed enough to receive a Bachelor’s Degree from Springfield College in 2012 and have been working in education since 2013.
