Welcome to fourth grade! My name is Kathy Neffinger and I have been teaching at St. Thomas school since 2006. I have a Bachelors degree from Northeastern University and have taken several courses towards my Masters in Education at Elms College.
I am passionate about teaching, and find true joy in providing the building blocks to help my students achieve success in anything they set out to do. My classroom is a warm, loving environment where each student is valued and respected. My teaching style involves hands-on-learning and different varieties of instruction, where each student can thrive while acquiring personal responsibility, and a life-long love for learning. This is why I am proud to say I am a member of the St. Thomas team.
I am also a Battle of the Books advisor and enjoy coaching students in this wonderful reading program.
I am looking forward to spending a great year together!
I am currently correcting the students’ rough draft for their research projects. I am thoroughly enjoying learning about the famous person that have each chosen.
