My name is Kathy Guthrie. I am an All-Day Kindergarten teacher at Neely Traditional Academy. I enjoy working with children and helping them realize their potential by having a fun educational experience. An education is much more than learning to read, write, and do math facts, an education should empower a child and help him or her make a positive contribution to our world.
I am relatively new to Arizona. I began my teaching career in California many years ago—straight out of college. I soon moved to Utah and took a break to raise 5 great kids. When I went back into teaching, I taught both ½, and then All-Day Kindergarten for 12 years. I have been at Neely since 2011.
Outside of school I enjoy hiking, biking, weight lifting, playing games, scrapbooking, and just spending time with my husband, kids and grandkids.
I look forward to getting to know all of you this school year!
