Miss Dufficy

Hello all!! My name is Katie Dufficy and I am a first year teacher here at Kuser Elementary School! I will be teaching 1st grade and I am super excited!  Fun fact, I am a Hamilton native and, even better, I am a former Kuser Kat and I am so excited to be back! After Kuser, I went to Reynolds and then graduated from Steinert in 2016! This was my favorite school with some of my favorite teachers!  Some of my old teachers are still working here at Kuser, which is incredible! The Kuser community is so strong and so connected, which is why I am thrilled to be back! 

After high school, I went down to Stockton University and graduated there with a BA in Elementary Education and a minor in Childhood Studies. I also worked at a daycare while completing my student teaching and it was a great experience. I live at home here in Hamilton, with my mother who is a retired nurse, my older brother who is a New Jersey State Trooper, and my younger sister who is a sophomore at Temple University studying Molecular Biology. Teaching has always been a passion of mine, ever since I was a little girl. I loved playing schooltime at home with my family, and loved helping students as time went on in school. Some fun things about me are that I love the beach, unicorns, the color purple, and anything with glitter! I have a dog named Phillies, and a cat named Nala who get along like a typical brother and sister! 

Helping students grow, learn, and change is an incredible experience and which is why I picked teaching as my career. My goal for this year is to see every child grow into the best version of themselves and gain the confidence to take on any challenge that might come their way this school year.

Excited for this school year!
