Hello, my name is Jeff Thomas and this is my 10th year here at Taylor as an 8th grade American History teacher.  For the last eight years, I have had the opportunity to serve teachers and students as the Social Studies department chair.  I am proud to be a Mesa Public Schools product.  I was a student at Poston Junior High and later graduated from Mountain View, go Toros!  I attended Arizona State University and shorty thereafter began teaching allowing me the opportunity to have a positive impact on today’s youth.

We start out the school year studying our countries path to independence during the American Revolution.  By mid semester, we will discuss the evolution of the United States government, our countries economic system, and conclude our semester with our countries worst economic collapse, the Great Depression.

I am very excited to be a member of the Taylor Junior High staff and look forward to a year full of high expectations, student achievement, and promoting a climate of educational success.  As a Taylor teacher, I am committed to student achievement and preparing students to be lifelong learners.
