Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Stephanie Thomas
I received my bachelor’s degree in elementary education in 1995 from Aurora University, in Aurora, Ill., with language arts and social science endorsements. I also received my master’s degree from Aurora University in 2004. I began my teaching career student teaching in first grade at East View Elementary School. In fall 1995, I began my “official” teaching career at Boulder Hill Elementary School, teaching reading, first and fifth grades. In 1997 I had the opportunity to help open Old Post Elementary School. This was a very exciting time, as Old Post was the first new school that District 308 had opened in 25 years. In my 21 years at Old Post, I taught kindergarten for two years, and I have spent the rest of my time teaching first grade. I am honored to have been a part of District 308 for the past 23 years.
