Ms. Kristina Thomas

Welcome to fifth grade at East Aiken School of the Arts! I’m extremely elated to share this time of learning and growing with you! My love of learning and path to education began in the public school system in Williamsburg County (Greeleyville, SC). Having a desire to become an educator, a full academic scholarship led me to Orangeburg, SC to begin the journey. I have a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Claflin University and a master’s degree in Individual and Family Development from South Carolina State University. My goal is to use my educational preparation, many years of experience, and love for people to support students in becoming well-rounded individuals. When I’m not in the classroom, you can find me spending time with friends and family, cooking, reading, or crafting.
