My name is Katie Thomas, and I want to welcome you to my website! I started teaching 5th grade in 2013, and I can't imagine doing anything else! I grew up in Scarborough and graduated from Scarborough High School. I continued my education at the University of Maine Farmington. There I earned my Bachelor’s of Science in Elementary Education with a minor in History. Currently, I'm enrolled in the Literacy Education masters program at the University of Southern Maine.
In my spare time, I love reading, cooking/baking, camping, hiking and spending time with my family and my cats, Orion and Apollo!
I am very much looking forward to the 2018-2019 school year! A big focus in my classroom is having students learn meaningful topics while hitting the standards and then presenting their learning through engaging, authentic projects. My goal for the year is for every student in my class to leave with a love of learning.
