Ms. Lori Thomas-Williams

Hi! The students call me Ms. Lori.  I am one of the Montessori EL teachers and work with grades k-5.  I support EL students with language focusing on speaking and writing. I have been teaching at Crossroads for more than 20 years now and really enjoy the students and families I work with.

I live in St. Paul with my husband Rico, my son Sami, and our very stubborn dog Lucy! I live close to Crossroads so you might see me at the grocery store or walking around Como Lake. 

Please feel free to call or email me if you have any questions about ELL services.

Thank you for making Crossroads such a wonderful place to work!
