Assistant Principal (Grades 6-12)

Hello My Name Is...

Dr. Autumn Thomas

AP 6.12

Dear Sobesky Academy Community,

            Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year.  I am excited to present myself as your incoming assistant principal.  My experience working in K-8 settings as a teacher and administrator have influenced my decision to join the amazing staff at Sobesky Academy.  As a classroom teacher, I have always had the ability and skill to connect with students who yearn for extra guidance and school connection.  As an administrator, I use my skills in building relationships with all stakeholders to help my students feel successful and empowered.

            It is my belief that school is a place for self-exploration, a setting for students to grow academically, apply those skills to their own goals for themselves, and see how they fit into an ever-changing world.  My experience in trauma informed practices, restorative practices, and responsive teaching has prepared me to always put the students’ needs at the center of my practice.  I understand that students need loving boundaries and a team of adults to model integrity and perseverance in order for them to reach the highest level of their own capabilities.  

            As an educational expert, I coach a team of teachers who have high expectations for themselves and their students.  I encourage engaging units in the classroom, bringing my own extensive array of experiences to help guide instruction. 

            Ultimately, I have chosen Sobesky Academy purposefully because I aim to inspire all students to reach their highest potential in an alternative and therapeutic setting.  My daily goal is to bring out the best in everyone I work with.  Education is a human experience that has the potential to influence a person over their lifetime.  It is my mission is to create life-long critical thinkers, learners, explorers, experimenters, and future role models.  I take this mission seriously and see Sobesky Academy as an opportunity to unlock the best possibilities for students.
