Dear Fifth Graders,
My name is Lesia Thomas and I am so excited to be your fifth grade math, and science teacher this school year!
In August of 2010, I moved from New York to Virginia. While living in New York, I attended Mercy College, where I obtained a Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology. After receiving this degree, I taught special education for two years. When those two years expired, I had a strong desire to further my education. With that desire, I returned to school to achieve a Master of Science Degree in Education/Special Education. I was able to fulfill this desire at Turro College, located in New York City. After accomplishing this goal, I returned to the classroom as a special education teacher and taught for four years.
Now, here I am teaching in Virginia, in one of the GREATEST Elementary Schools in Loudoun County, Rolling Ridge! I am honored to be here!!! I can’t wait to meet all of you and discover your academic stories.
I look forward to learning and growing with you this school year!
