Ms. Thomas - Learning Specialist


Ms. Thomas

Welcome to the 2021-2022 School Year!

This is my 13th year at Ranch View Middle School, and I am currently a Learning Specialist and the Sped Education Department Chair.  I am passionate about encouraging, inspiring and teaching students so they can grow and reach their full potential in all areas.  I believe that every student can be successful and that success begins by meeting each student where they are at. We all learn in different ways and I get excited about differentiating instruction, reaching students with a variety of learning styles and exploring a variety of approaches to learning. Prior to entering the field of education, I worked in the financial industry as a credit analyst and a consumer loan officer.  In addition, over the past 31 years, I've built a Mary Kay Cosmetics home business and continue to love teaching about skin care and color cosmetics and servicing my amazing clients. I earned my undergraduate degree from Colorado State University and attended Metropolitan State University to complete my teaching credentials in Special Education. 

Outside of school, I keep busy with family.  I have four grown children who attended Ranch View Middle School and ThunderRidge High School, and two amazing grandchildren who all live in the area.

Growing up I played softball, then basketball and volleyball in High School. I continue to enjoy sports and exercising as an adult. You may see me working a variety of the athletic events here at Ranch View or attending performances as I love to see our students both inside and outside of the classroom.

I am passionate about the idea that "the little things are the big things," and I live both my personal life and my professional life with that in mind. Each day is a blessing and I am thankful for the many little miracles that each day holds! 

Together, let's have an amazing year!
