Mrs. Princess Thurmond

I am a wife and mother of 3 (Kayla, Kennedi, and Kendal). I would like to extend a heartfelt welcome to First Grade, where we are all a family. I have served in the educational field since 2016 and enjoy what I do daily. I am a Paine College graduate, class of 2010 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology; along with being a 2021 graduate of the American College of Education where I received my Masters of Education in Early Childhood Education. I am so excited about beginning this year with your child as their first grade teacher. I am elated for this new opportunity to expand myself and develop a loving and caring relationship with my students and parents. I believe in creating a very welcoming, structured, and exciting time in my class. I will make sure that learning is FUN while adhering to our primary focus, which is to ensure that each child is well prepared for tomorrow.
