Mrs. Christy Thomas
Let me begin with a great big WELCOME to KINDERGARTEN!!!
As we begin this new school year let me share with you how happy I am to have your child as a part of my class. My class quickly becomes like family to me! We will spend lots of time together this year. We will be discovering many things about ourselves, others, and the world around us! I am looking forward to a fantastic year in kindergarten!
I will get the opportunity to learn lots about your child as the year progresses. So let me take a moment to share a little bit about myself. I am a graduate of Texas A&M University – Commerce. I have my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education with a specialization in Early Childhood and a master’s degree in Reading. This is my eighth year at Sunnyvale Elementary; however it is my twenty-first year of teaching! I have taught grades Pre-K through Fourth grade, but Kindergarten is my passion! This will be my 15th year to teach kindergarten.
I have been happily married for twenty years. My husband, Chris, is a firefighter in Mesquite. We have three wonderful children that keep us very busy. Cole will be a junior at SHS and he enjoys playing football and socializing with friends! Chloe will be a freshman at SHS and she enjoys ALL school sports! And our little princess, Corlee, will be in fourth grade and she enjoys cheerleading, and karate!
I absolutely LOVE teaching and I value all of my students as if they were my own. I am looking forward to a great year with all of my students and their families. Your support greatly affects your child’s learning and success in kindergarten!!! Please join me in making your child’s first year of school a BIG success!
