Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My family and I recently moved to South Carolina and I am very happy to be a part of the LMES family. I have been teaching for seventeen years, all in kindergarten! I remember being in second grade and telling my parents that I wanted to be a teacher. From then on I knew what my calling would be and I have loved it more than I can express.
You are your child's first teacher, but it is an honor and a privilege to teach and grow alongside them during our days at school together. So I would like to say thank you for entrusting your little ones to me. We are going to have a great year together!
Some things about Mrs. Thornhill that you might find interesting...
I was born in Jacksonville, Florida. We moved to Pennsylvania when I was 10 and I remained there through college. I moved to Virginia for my first teaching job. I had never been more excited to buy school supplies than for my very first classroom!!! I taught at DreamKeepers Academy for three years followed by eight years at Sewells Point Elementary School. I was named SPES teacher of the year in 2012 and was in the District top 13 for NPS. I met and befriended many families during my 11 years in Norfolk and I hope to do the same here.
I am also the mother to three lovely children, one daughter and two sons. They keep us very busy and entertained! My husband and I just recently bought a home with 5 acres so the kids have a lot of room to run and play. We have pigs and sheep! In my spare time I like to read, make wooden home decor items and have recently started making tumblers.
