Gerene Thom, Kindergarten

My name is Gerene Thom.  I am a kindergarten teacher in the Unified School District of DePere.  I have been at Heritage for 17 years, but in the teaching profession for 27 years.  I graduated from Iowa State University and later received my master's degree from Viterbo University.  I enjoy teaching because I enjoy figuring out what helps children learn and succeed.  I like to use music and rhythm and rhyme to encourage learning.  
In my free time I like to spend time with my husband, Brett, and our four children.  I like to go for long walks, workout at the YMCA,  swim and write children's books that I hope to publish someday.
