• Thomas - Grade 1


     Oberg Mountain

    Welcome to Mlle Thomas's 2019-2020 first grade class!  This is my eleventh year teaching at Normandale.   This will be my fourth year teaching first grade.   I am eager to collaborate with my colleagues to make this year an excellent experience for my students.  I also look forward to strengthening and building  meaningful connections with my students and their families. This year will be filled with friendship, learning and FUN!  Below is a brief description of my background.
    I grew up in Stillwater, Minnesota and I started learning French in ninth grade. I instantly fell in love with the language, culture, and the food.  I went on to college at the University of Wisconsin-Madison to pursue a BA in French.  I realized soon after working at Normandale as a kindergarten paraprofessional that I wanted to go back to school for teaching.  I completed my teaching license and Master's Degree in Education at the University of St. Thomas.
