About Mrs. Thomas

Getting to know Mrs. Thomas

Hello first graders and parents!  I am so excited to have you in my class!  I know we will have an excellent year!  I love teaching and getting to know each and every one of my students!

This is my second year at Hillcrest Elementary and I absolutely love it here!  

I served in the Army for 3 years and deployed to Iraq in support of OIF.  After the military I chose to continue my education and have earned a Bachelor of Arts in Human Services from Columbia College of Missouri and a Master of Arts in Elementary Education from the University of Southern California {Go Trojans!}.

I am married and we have five children between us {we are a blended family}.  They are currently in 11th, 10th, two of them are in 9th {no, they are not twins wink} and 6th grades.  My husband is in the Army and has served for fifteen years and is currently a 1SG on Fort Rucker.
