About Your Librarian

About your librarian, Mrs. Thomas

It is a going to be an awesome 2017-2018 school  year @ A.V. Cato Elementary. I am humbled to be your teacher librarian! 

My Teaching Background: My education degree is from the Sam Houston State University and I have a Masters of Education degree in Instructional Technology from the Sam Houston State University. This is my 4th year as a librarian/media specialist.  Three years were at Tavola Elementary and the last year at Huntsville High School.  Before this, I was an Instructional Technologist with three elementary campuses that helped teachers integrate technology. I have been in the educational field for 20 years stating as a paraprofessional.  Later in my life, I went on to get my Bachelor Degree then followed with my Master Degree. We all face difficulties in life but with determination and confidence we can achieve anything. I have always felt that all individuals can learn given proper reinforcement and resources.

What else am I up to? I am currently working on finishing up my Library certification at Texas Women's University.  I am a lifelong learner. 

About my family: I was born in Houston, Texas and lived my elementary years in Arkansas.  I graduated from Crosby High School, Crosby, TX in 1983! I am married to Mike and we have just recently moved to the area to be closer to our daughter and son in law.  Our daughter Cortney is married to Garrett who both work in the Fort Worth area.  

I am blessed to be here at A.V Cato elementary now.  I truly look forward to being with you the remainder of this school year and years to come!  Please stop by the library and share what you are reading!
