Welcome to Preschool!
My name is Colleen Thome. This is my first year working for Hastings Schools and I am so happy to be here! I grew up in West Saint Paul, MN and moved to this wonderful town of Hastings 11 years ago. I went to a small college in Marshall, MN called Southwest State University where I earned a degree in History. I received my teaching degree with a Masters at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN. I taught at the elementary level in St. Paul for many years until I landed here at Tilden!
I am married to my very supportive husband Rick and we have three children. Ben, who loves hockey and Legos, is 11 years old and in 5th grade. Norah, who loves to dance and play the piano, is 9 and she is in 3rd grade. Our youngest is Catherine and she just started kindergarten this year. She loves gymnastics and singing. We also have a cuddly dog named Ralph.
I love being a teacher! I especially love to watch the learning come alive for kids. It is so exciting. I also love gardening, traveling and doing things outside with friends and family.
This year is going to be great.
