Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Lia Longo Thomas
It is my pleasure to introduce myself as your child's Art teacher. This is my eleventh year at Crawford-Rodriguez Elementary School and my 20th year in the Jackson School District. Prior to moving to Jackson in 1996, I taught Art in the New York City Public School System. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts from St. John's University and a Master's Degree in Elementary Education from Aldephia University. Teaching Art is my passion. Every day I am inspired by my students' creativity, hard work and enthusiasm for Art!
Outside of school, my other passion is my family- my husband Rich, my children Richard and Melissa, and my dog Charlie. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, traveling, antiquing, cooking(most of the time) and creating art in any way I can.
