Faculty and Staff
Dr. Jeff Thomas
All professors are required to provide three areas of performance in their job. These areas help make us better professionals, help us teach others, and learn from those around us. Dr. Jeff Thomas' duties include teaching, engaging in research, and providing service to the department and community.
The courses that Dr. Thomas teaches include Science Methods, Student Teaching Synthesis, and several graduate courses. Recently designed courses have focused on using technology in the K-12 classrooms. Examples of these technologies include PDA units, GPS units, scientific sensors, software programs, and the Internet.
Recently, Dr. Thomas worked with area teachers to build manuals for Biology I, Advanced
Biology, Chemistry, and Integrated Chemistry and Physics.
Additionally, he has run workshops about using graphic organizers in the
elementary and middle school classrooms, he serves as the national
Research Director for the Council for Elementary Science International
(CESI) association and, more locally, as the University Academic Coordinator
for the Living Learning Communities.
Dr. Thomas and his wife, Andrea, have one daughter, Lauren. All three enjoy playing outdoors and swimming in the lake. Dr. Thomas also likes playing sports, working with church, and working puzzles.
