Mrs. Thacker's Page
My name is Mrs. Thacker, and I teach 3rd grade at Riverdale Elementary School.  I have been teaching for 9 years. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in early childhood education at The Ohio State University and my Master of Arts degree in education and a K-12 reading intervention endorsement at The University of Findlay.
I wanted to be a teacher since I was a little girl.  I love the light that comes on in a child's eyes when she/he finally understands something that she/he has struggled with.  I am always surprised at how willing my third graders are to embrace any new experience.  
I am in charge of the Science Committee, I serve on the Hancock County Community Cultural Awareness Committee, and I am the high school quiz bowl advisor. In 2014, I spent a month in Japan on a Fulbright Teacher Trip.  I've learned to incorporate Japanese culture in my classroom.  In  2015, I spent a week at the George Washington Teachers' Institute.  I was chosen as one of five Ohio teachers to stay at the Mount Vernon estate and learn about our first president.
In addition to my roles as a teacher, I bake and decorate wedding cakes.  I also enjoy reading and writing poetry.  I spend most of my time attending the many events my kids are in: soccer, football, volleyball, basketball, plays, band, choir, quiz bowl, scouts and 4-H.
My family consists of my husband Shaun (whom I have been married to for 22 years), my sons Christopher ( 22), Wyatt (17), Samuel (15), my daughter Johannah (12), and myself.
