Degrees and Certifications:
Meet Ms. Liz Thomas!
Welcome to the new school year! I am so excited to start my second year here at 5th Grade at Spring Avenue School and work with your kind, curious, funny, and hardworking student!
I hold an undergraduate degree in Communication from the University of Illinois and a Master's Degree in Elementary Education from National Louis University. I am endorsed in Middle Level Education, Social Studies, and Language Arts. I further my learning by staying updated on best practices in education and instruction and participate in professional learning development on a regular basis. In my free time, I enjoy reading, yoga, cheering for the Chicago Cubs, walking my rescue dog Murphy, and traveling domestically and internationally.
It’s going to be a fantastic year for our 5th graders and I look forward to fostering your student’s curiosity and enjoyment of learning. Working and communicating with parents is an integral piece of our plan. Ms. Folliard and I look forward to collaborating with you on our team throughout the year to best support our students. This is going to be a GREAT school year!
