Mrs. Thomas

Hello parents and students. My name is Jennifer Thomas and I am delighted to be joining you again this year on The Trail! I joined the kindergarten team at Buffalo Trail in 2013 following a lengthy career as a stay-at-home mom to three sons. I received my B.A. in English Education from VA Tech and earned a license to teach 8th through 12th grades. I decided to return to teaching in the elementary classroom. My decision was based upon years of volunteering in many elementary classrooms. As such, I earned an additional PK-3 endorsement to my license at UVA and Marymount University.


I am married, and my husband John is also an elementary school teacher. Our sons are now grown; our twin sons are in college and our eldest is completing a masters program. In my free time I enjoy reading, jigsaw puzzles, movies, shopping on Amazon, dining out, and spending time with my family and friends. I am looking forward to a wonderful year with our kindergarten students!
