Hello, my name is Jennifer Thomas and I’m thrilled to be teaching kindergarten at Buffalo Trail Elementary!  I joined The Trail in 2013 and I'm excited to continue my adventures in kindergarten with wonderful teammates, students, and parents.

        I received my B.A. in English Education from VA Tech and earned a license to teach 8th through 12th grades.  I have recently earned an additional PK-3 endorsement to my license through UVA and Marymount University.  Following a break from my career, I decided to return to teaching in the elementary classroom.  My decision was based upon years of volunteer hours in many an elementary classroom. 

        On a personal note, my husband John and I have been married since 1993 and we are the proud parents of three sons.  Our eldest, Jason, attends George Mason University and our twins, Evan and Ryan, are at NVCC.  My husband is also an elementary school teacher, currently teaching third grade in Fairfax County.  

       I feel privileged to be teaching your child and will strive to establish an inviting, engaging, and stimulating learning environment.  I look forward to becoming your partner in creating a successful school year for your student.
