Ms. Thao

I have been a teacher in the Saint Paul public school district for 11 years, all of which have been at Randolph Heights.  I am also proud to say that I'm a product of Saint Paul public schools.  I graduated from Harding High School in 2000.  I received my Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Wisonsin River Falls.  I taught 5th grade my first five years at Randolph Heights, and then first grade ever since.  I enjoy teaching first grade because first graders are such hard workers and make such significant gains.  It's amazing to see such little people make so much growth within a year's time. It keeps me passionate about my job and reminds me everyday why I am a teacher. 


My family and I enjoy spending quality time together roller skating, riding our bikes, and taking walks at the park. My husband and I have three beautiful girls, ages seven, three, and one. My seven year old also attends Randolph Heights.  As a parent and teacher, I get to see the school from two perspectives.  My husband and I feel truly honored to be able to have our daughter attend Randolph Heights.  It is truly an incredible school.
