About the Teacher



Degrees and Certifications:

Dr. Misty Thomas

Welcome to an adVenture!

I have loved every minute of working with children for nearly 10 years of my career! I worked at the Lee County Youth Development Center for 7 years as a residential specialist and served as a residential supervisor for 1 year. I also taught 7th grade Life Science at Drake Middle School for 1 year. This is my 3rd year at Pick elementary school as the academic venture teacher. I earned my bachelor's degree in Biology from Talladega College, my master's degree in Secondary Science Education from Auburn University, and my Ph.D. in Science Education from Auburn University. My goal is to implement creative thinking, collaboration, and inquiry-based learning in STEM for our face-to-face and virtual venture class. Some topics we cover include Chess, Environmental Science, Earth & Space Science, Scientific Method, Engineering and Newton’s Laws of Motion just to name a few.  My goal is to take what they are learning in their classrooms and stretch it to enhance their knowledge and skills.
