Hello! My name is Carmela Thayer and I will be your child's first grade teacher this year!
I am originally from Connecticut and earned a degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of Connecticut. I received my Elementary Education Certificate from Eastern Connecticut State University and my Master of Education in Literacy from Queens University of Charlotte. I have been teaching first grade in CMS for nineteen years and this will be my fifteenth year at Selwyn.

In my leisure time, I enjoy baking, reading mystery novels, running and walking my English Springer Spaniel, Sadie. Sadie is a sweet dog and has enjoyed all my attention this summer. I am looking forward to starting the new school year and I am excited to meet all my new students and their families.

I hope that you enjoyed your summer and are ready to begin a great new year in first grade!
