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.
