Miss Nicole Thomas

4th Grade Teacher



Hello! My name is Nicole Thomas and this is my fourth year teaching at St. James School. I graduated from the University of Iowa and went on to obtain my Masters in Education from National Louis University. I am the Math teacher for the entire fourth grade class. As an educator I strive to challenge my students and to instill a love for learning in each of my students. I love spending time with my nephew, my family, and my dog Lily. I also love to read, travel, cook, and listen to music. I am a dedicated Cubs, Blackhawks, Bears, and Bulls fan!


Homework Policy


I forgot my homework, what happens?
1 point is taken off the assignment and the assignment is to be completed during recess that day.

When is homework considered late?
Homework is to be turned in first thing in the morning (preferably before the bell), otherwise it is considered late.

When is departmental (science, math, reading) homework considered late?
Departmental homework is due at the start of each departmental class.

I missed a day (or days) of school, how much time do I have to make up my assignments?
The amount of days missed will be equivalent to the amount of days given to make up the assignment.
