Miss Nicole Thomas

4th Grade Teacher



Hello! My name is Nicole Thomas and this is my fifth 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 nephews, 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!
