Miss Thomas' 5th Grade

Hello! My name is Miss Thomas and I am so excited to teach 5th grade at Mishawaka Catholic School this year! While this will be my first year teaching 5th grade E/LA, Social Studies, and Religion, it also marks my fifth year with MCS. Over the past four years, I have taught Media Arts, Dance, Study Skills, and served as part of the resource team. I look forward to watching the 5th grade learn, grow, and prepare themselves for their vocations!

God bless!

All my best,
Miss Thomas
