• My name is Karlyn Thomas.
    I am named after my mom's best friend in college.
    I was born in Japan but did not stay long enough to learn the language.  
    When I went to kindergarten my teacher asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, my response was, "A cat."
    I spent most of my younger years riding horses in Arizona.
    I met my husband in college and we came to live in Ketchikan for just 5 years.  I have now lived here 27 years. 
    I got my degree in teaching from Northern Arizona University and have been teaching for 26 years.
    I love teaching kindergarten and will do my best to make school a positive and successful place for your child.
