Welcome to 6th Grade! My name is Mary Ellen Thomas. I am very excited to have your child in my class. Parent participation and communication is essential to having a great school year. I strongly encourage parent communication and partnership with the teacher. I look forward to working as a team with you on your child's educational journey!
I graduated from Northeastern State University with a Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education. I also hold my Elementary Education degree, as well as a Master's of Education in School Administration. I possess these degrees in the state of Oklahoma, as well as the state of Illinois. In addition, I am also certified as a Project Lead the Way Launch Lead Teacher. Currently, I am working on adding Reading Specialist to my certificate as well.
Throughout the years I have accumulated experience in working in diverse fields. I have taught multiple grade levels. My focus areas have been early childhood, lower elementary, upper elementary, and the college level. I have also worked in the medical field and as both a residential and commercial property manager.
Again, I look forward to working with you and your child this upcoming year!
