Welcome to My Classroom
    Hi! I am Shelley Thomas. I am a familiar face to Highland County. I grew up in neighboring Bath County and have lived on the Bath/Highland line most of my life. I am so excited to be working with the Shenandoah Valley Head Start program through the Highland School System. This is a great school system to be a part of. I graduated from Ferrum College, James Madison University and just recently obtained my Masters in Education from Concordia University.  I have been fortunate to have experienced many different areas in education. I have been an aide and taught Art, Special Education, Kindergarten, Fourth grade, and currently Pre-School. As far as my hobbies, I enjoy spending time with my family and following my kids through all of their activities, especially cheering them on during their sporting events. I have two teenagers, so our household is quite busy! We enjoy doing things on the farm and cooking together. I also enjoy photography and baking, when time allows.
    I am so excited to be a part of the Highland County School System and look forward to this school year!  I am so glad you are loaning your children to me for this year and look forward to seeing them grow and bloom!
