Shayne Thames

Hello! My name is Shayne Thames. I am a Kindergarten teacher here at Carthage Primary and this is my fifth year of teaching.
I am a 2004 graduate of Carthage High School. I graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies (Early Childhood Education) with ESL from Stephen F. Austin State University in May of 2009.
I am married to my best friend, Blake. He is a wonderful husband. He keeps me smiliing and supports me in everything. We have a wonderful dog named Kisses who keeps us laughing.
When I have spare time I enjoy riding horses and just being outdoors. I have always loved working with children and teaching has been absolutely great! I love working with children of all ages, but Kindergarteners hold a special place in my heart. I love seeing their “light bulbs” go off when they learn something new.
I love working here at Primary. The children are wonderful as well as the staff.
