My name is Mrs. Santiago! I am from North Arkansas and have lived in Abilene for overs 2 years. My husband, Michael, and I moved to Abilene in May of 2020. I graduated from Harding University in 2018 with a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education. This is my 5th year of teaching and my 3rd year at Thomas. I have taught 1st grade all 5 years. I am a teacher because I want to have a positive impact on the children of our future, and I am so thankful I get to do that here at Thomas Elementary!
