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.
