Mrs. Thome

Welcome to Kindergarten at Painted Sky! I am so excited to have your child in my class this year. I cannot wait to get to know your child, and help them shine! This year is going to look a little different for all of us, but I know working together we can help your child achieve success. As a team, we will start your child’s educational journey on the right foot.

Newsletters will be sent weekly with all the latest information about what we are focusing on in Kindergarten. Please know, I will also be available to meet via zoom, over the phone, or through email.

Your child’s social, emotional, and academic success are the most important things in the world to me. I am so excited to work together to make this year fantastic!


My Mission

My desire is to create an environment so full of love, joy, and passion that it inspires my students to become life long learners.


Defining Moment

I was raised in a family of educators, it has literally been in my blood for generations. As a result, I did what any empowered teenager would do and rebelled. Getting a degree in Public Relations, just to be different. It did not take long for me to realize that I had denied my destiny. I went back to school and earned an additional degree in elementary education and have never looked back. I adore teaching, and am so grateful for the opportunity to educate tomorrow’s future.


Core Educational Beliefs

I believe that each child holds a gift for the world inside them. My job is to empower them, and to help them unlock their gifts allowing them discover their light.


Prior Experience

I have worked in Kindergarten at:

~ A Private School in Reno, NV

~ A Public School in Rapid City, SD

~ A Charter School in Gilbert, AZ
