Sacred Heart Catholic School
Ms. Stefanie Porter
Hi! My name is Patricia Neky. I am the 6th grade homeroom teacher at Sacred Heart.
Currently, I teach Religion and Science for the 7th and 8th grades. I also teach Religion, Science, and Social Studies for the 6th grade.
I consider myself a Californian, now that I have spent more than half of my life in this beautiful state, but I am not a native. I come from Pennsylvania where I was born and raised. After college, I taught for a few years in Central Pennsylvania. When I received a job offer to move to California, I jumped at the chance and have never regretted the move.
I spent over twenty years working in the accounting field, with ten of those years at the Modesto Bee. As the newspaper industry began to change due to the rapid advances in communication technology, I looked again to my love of teaching.
I have been teaching again since 1998. I am thrilled to be back in the classroom and especially, here, at Sacred Heart in Patterson. I feel privileged to share in the Spirit and love of our wonderful Catholic community!
