Welcome to 5th grade at Rio Grande!

My name is Elizabeth Thomas and I am a fifth grade teacher at Rio Grande Elementary. I graduated from Indiana State University in 2001 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. I later went back to Indiana State University to obtain my Master’s Degree in Reading.

My husband is also a 5th grade teacher at Lost Creek Elementary. We have two boys that are very active in many sports.
