About: Janelle Thomas

  • Role : 2nd Grade Teacher
Class Newsletters

Messiah Lutheran School was my first call after graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Concordia University in Seward, Nebraska, and have since received my Master’s in Classroom Teaching from the University of Missouri-St. Louis.

I knew I wanted to become a teacher when I was younger, but having great Christian role models as teachers in grade school and high school helped me come to where I am today. God has blessed my life with loving parents and good Christian schools. I love working with students at this age because they are so eager to learn. I especially love teaching Christian character and about the love of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

My husband, Steve, and I live in St. Peters with our two daughters, Dahlia and Violet and our dogs. We are thrilled that they both attend Messiah’s wonderful program.

In my free time I enjoy outdoor activities, such as tennis, cycling, softball, running and participating in triathlons. My husband and I also love to attend concerts, Cardinals games, theater events, and traveling.
