Mrs. Maggie Thomas
Board Member- Parent Elect
This is my third year as a parent of Lakeview Academy students! Our first year at Lakeview I was a classroom aid in 4th grade and loved every minute working with those students.
I grew up in Alpine Utah and moved to Rexburg Idaho to attend BYU Idaho. I loved my time at BYU Idaho and enjoyed everything it had to offer; especially meeting my handsome husband.
I have a background in education which is one of the many reason serving on our board is appealing. I graduated from BYU-Idaho with a degree in Social Studies Education. My husband and I moved back to Utah for me to do my student teaching at Union Middle School in Sandy. I love teaching! There is nothing more fulfilling than sharing something you are passionate about with others. Education is one of my greatest passions both as an educator and student.
Our oldest son was born shortly after I finished teaching and his two brothers followed. With 3 young boys at home, I have been busy! They are my whole world. I am excited for the time when I am able to get back in the classroom.
In my spare time I love to be with my family. There is never a dull moment around our house and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love being outside hiking, camping, snowboarding and relaxing in my backyard. I recently picked up mountain biking and have really enjoyed the new adventure. I love photography and creating things in photoshop. I enjoy entertaining and being with friends. About two years ago, my husband decided we needed to add a little girl to our family and surprised us with a black Newfoundland puppy we named Daisy; we love her to pieces.
I’m very excited for the opportunity to serve on the Board here at Lakeview Academy.
