Shaina Thomas

Fourth Grade Teacher

I am very excited to be joining the Founders staff. My family and I reside right here in Flower Mound. We attend Valley Creek Church. My children attend Founders. Andrew is in 7th grade and Olivia is in 5th . Other members of our family include our dog Pepper, our cat Griffin, our tortoise Spike and our 2 leopard geckos: Zeus and Apollo. I attended college in Tulsa, Oklahoma at Oral Roberts University and graduated with my degree in Communication Arts Education. I also have minors in Literature and Music. Immediately after graduation, I moved to Texas and began substitute teaching in the LISD school district at the secondary level. I had the opportunity to take on a long term position at Flower Mound High School. I transferred to a private Christian school where I taught in the middle school. Over the last ten years, I have taught various grade levels while completing my master’s degree in Education from UNT. I taught Kindergarten for three years, 2nd grade for two years, and the remaining years have been spent in the 4th grade. I absolutely adore the 4th grade. It is truly where my heart is!! I also have a background in teaching Theatre Arts, Public Speaking, and Debate.
