Thank you for visiting my classroom site!  It's a pleasure to be working in such an outstanding school district and with such phenomenal kids and staff here at Coppell Middle School West!
 
I possess two BA's, one in Marketing & Communications and the other in History.  History and sports have always been my passion, though, so my business experience was short-lived when I decided to make a career change early on, and I have been in the education field ever since for 22 years.  I have a Social Studies Composite certification for secondary grade levels 6-12.   
 
As I am originally from Oklahoma and then moved to the DFW Metroxplex at age 10 and went on to graduate from Berkner High School in Richardson, I then decided to begin my career in the area too after graduating from the University of North Texas.  I started off teaching and coaching at Lamar Middle School in Irving, TX  in 1997, and then I transferred to Nimitz High School within the Irving Independent School District the following year, in which I spent the next 10 years teaching World History, World Geography, and Economics, as well as coaching baseball and basketball.  However, my family has resided within the Coppell Independent School District and has attended Coppell ISD schools since 2001, so I made the transfer from Irving ISD to Coppell ISD in 2008, and Coppell Middle School West has been my home ever since. 
 
It's a great campus with lots of friendly people, and I enjoy not only being an active member of the community, but working with the kids, parents, and staff of this Coppell ISD community, as well.  I have also coached multiple sports professionally for the last 22 years within the Texas public education system.  However, this year I am only coaching tennis for CMS West.  The gain is two-fold.  This gives me an opportunity to coach a sport I have always had much interest in, and it gives me more time at home.  Nonetheless, Coppell Middle School West is a great place to be when I am not at home.  It's my second home and my second family. 
 
Thanks again!  
-Coach Thomas   
 
P.S.  There's something particularly important you should know about me, as it is common knowledge and my students already know this about me too.  I'm a HUGE Dallas Mavericks and Oklahoma Sooners fan.
