Howdy! My name is Marilyn Thomas and I am beginning my 31st year of teaching. I grew up in Eagle Lake and graduated from Rice High School. I graduated from Texas A&M in College Station with a Bachelor's Degree in 1987 and later received my Master's Degree from the University of St. Thomas in 1991. I also have my ESL and GT certification.
I began my teaching career in Katy I.S.D. I taught there for 7 years before moving to Needville Elementary. I have taught 2nd grade for 30 of those 31 years.
I am married to Kenny and have two boys, Ty and Tanner. My husband works for Frito Lay. Ty is a 2017 graduate of Needville High School. He will be attending Blinn College in Brenham as a member of their livestock judging team. Tanner will be a junior at Needville. He is a member of the Needville FFA. As a family we raise Beefmaster cattle that we show at major livestock shows.
When I am not teaching, I enjoy being outdoors. I love to garden. I have many roses that are cuttings from my Great Grandmother Krobot. I also enjoy raising my own vegetables. In the early mornings or late evenings, we sit out on the porch and watch the many wild birds and hummingbirds visit their feeders.
I am looking forward to an amazing year with your child. If you need to contact me, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or write a me a quick note. I will then get back with you as soon as possible.
