Emma Thomas's Bio
5th Grade Teacher
Greetings! My name is Emma Thomas and I will be one of the fifth grade teachers for the upcoming school year! I was born in Rockford, Illinois, but moved to Tooele, Utah, in eighth grade and lived there until about a year ago. In high school, I played clarinet in Band and participated in school plays. I earned a Theatre degree from Southern Utah University, with a minor in Graphic Design, and then went back to school, getting my teaching degree at Utah State University.
This will be my fifth year teaching, having previous taught fourth grade for one year and sixth grade for two years in Tooele, and then fifth grade for one year in South Jordan. In my free time, I participate in community theatre productions, both onstage and backstage helping with costumes and makeup, and I enjoy dressing up in cosplay for conventions.
Participating in the arts was always my favorite part of going to school, and I can't wait for the opportunity to share that love with my students!
