Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education, Wichita State University
Michelle Thomas began teaching in 2009 and joined Kansas Connections Academy in 2020, where she teaches elementary school.
I wanted to become a teacher so that I could play a positive role in building students’ foundation for learning. I really enjoy helping my students love school.
Working at this school offers many opportunities to connect with students in both whole group and small group settings. I especially enjoy the opportunity to partner with Learning Coaches to help our students succeed.
This school community is special—students here are able to learn in a safe and comfortable environment as their caretakers and teachers work together with them as a team.

I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, going on walks, and doing art projects.
