Gerene Thom, Kindergarten
My name is Gerene Thom. I am a kindergarten teacher at Heritage Elementary School. I graduated from Iowa State University, and then received my Master of Education degree from Viterbo University.
I enjoy teaching because I like the challenge of figuring out how to help each child learn. In the classroom I like to use music and rhythm and rhyme to encourage the fun of learning.
In my free time, I like to go for long walks, workout at the YMCA, swim and write short stories that I hope to publish someday. I also like to spend time with my husband, Brett, and our four children.
