I am Deja Thomas, returning for my second year at Whittier ES as a Special Educator. This year I am working exclusively with grade 5 and co-teaching along with the general education staff. I've been teaching over 20 years with all but 1 1/2 years in Frederick County. I began my career as a middle school teacher and moved to elementary 4 years ago. I also have taught in the Twilight program at Heather Ridge School and in the summer I teach at Rock Creek School.
I grew up in Frederick and still live in the same house I grew up in with my 5 cats. Outside of school I have many interests including biking, hiking, reading, sewing, cooking, and anything "ocean". Fortunately, my two daughters both live near fabulous beaches in Savannah, GA and Wilmington, NC and have very comfortable guest rooms just for me. Traveling to see them is a priority.
I am looking forward to a year of growth and learning for all. If you need, me please email or call at 240-236-3164.
