Dr. Thomas began her career as a 4th and 5th grade teacher at Blaine Elementary School in 2005 after graduating from Western Washington University. She served as a building administrator in a neighboring district for 2 years before returning “home” to Blaine as Executive Director of Teaching and Learning in 2012.
In 2015, she completed a Doctorate in Education and Washington State Superintendent Certificate through the University of Washington Leadership for Learning (L4L) program.
Stacy is passionate about creating powerful learning opportunities for each and every student in Blaine through ongoing improvement of teaching and leadership. She loves working closely with Blaine’s amazing teachers and principals to make learning better for kids.
On a personal note, Stacy grew up in Whatcom county and loves the small town feel and closeness of the Blaine community. She and her husband, Seth are proud parents to Asher who is in first grade this year and brings much joy, wonder, and laughter to their lives.
Basic education in Washington state is defined by the Legislature (RCW 28A.150.210). As required by state law, OSPI develops the state's learning standards (RCW 28A.655.070) and oversees the assessment of the learning standards for state and federal accountability purposes. Learning standards define what all students need to know and be able to do at each grade level.
Our learning standards are developed through collaborative, public processes led by curriculum associations across the state and nationwide. Our learning standards incorporate the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Mathematics.
