My name is Diana Thomas and I am honored to have the opportunity to teach, learn and grow with your child. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in International Economics with a minor in Marketing from San Diego State University. Though my prior background was in finance, I have always had a passion for teaching and working with children. I went through an alternative certification program for Early Childhood through Sixth Grade, English as a Second Language and Gifted and Talented (trained). I have been teaching first grade in GISD since 2012.
I emigrated from Russia when I was 4 years old to Milwaukee, Wisconsin. From there my family moved to San Diego, California and years later, I met my wonderful husband while we both worked in finance. We decided to take a leap of faith and moved to Georgetown in 2006, so I could stay home with my boys for a few years. We wanted to raise them in a community with strong family values and an excellent school district. My oldest son, Nick, graduated from The University of Texas Austin. Alex is in 10th grade and Jacob is 9th grade.
I understand the expectations parents set for their teacher and will work hard to go above and beyond, to ensure your child receives the best education possible. My goal for your child is to create a learning community which inspires them to be lifelong learners. Communication and collaboration between you and me is important in ensuring their success. Please feel free to call, email or drop me a note anytime. I look forward to a wonderful year with your child.
