Degrees and Certifications:
Hello and welcome to the 2022-23 school year here at Meadow View Elementary. I am Thomas Warner and I transferred in after three years at Dixon Middle School. I earned my teacher certification in Texas and spent time teaching elementary school there, but I was raised in Meridian, Mississippi where I went to grade school and then college at MISSISSIPPI STATE UNIVERSITY ---- Go Bulldogs !!!!!
Fifth grade is an important year to prepare and get ready for middle school but let's have a great time synergizing and enjoying our final year of elementary school. Our fifth graders are the oldest kids on campus and they are expected to show leadership, set good examples for younger students, and lead the way in accomplishing big things.
My wife Lauren and I have three kids in Onslow County schools. We've got twin boys who will be 5th graders, and we've got a darling daughter who is in 11th grade this year. We've also got a dog and a cat. I am interested to hear about some of the pets our students have at their homes.
We will dive into I-Ready Math, CKLA Reading, lots of Social Studies & Science, along with tons of other things this school year. I can be contacted through e-mail or by phone in the front office so please do not hesitate to share concerns or ideas as the school year unfolds. I am so happy and proud to have been designated to teach with the group here and look forward to the challenges of learning and growing as we build our intelligence and social skills.
Our Energy Bus routines will be going full blast here at MVES. An important rule is that we are the drivers of our own bus. We create our moods and choose how we want our bus (our day to day lives) to operate. We want all staff and students to plug into positive things and move past any negativity - don't even pay attention to negative energy.
We will be sharing all the Energy Bus principles and concepts with students and families as the year progresses. It will be fun and it will create a positive atmosphere here and help the students see ways to enjoy positive time away from school.
