Bozeman, Thomas


   This should be an awesome year! I am excited and looking forward to working with all of my students and parents. Our 4th graders have some cool things happening this year - lockers, changing classes, different teachers, and of course some great classes.
   Our class mascot, the Barracuda, might seem bit scary at first, but has some great qualities that we will try to learn about as we go thru the year. The dictionary says that Barracudas can be fast, aggressive, curious, & opportunistic. These are good ways to approach learning. Another word for aggressive can be assertive and our students should be willing to try some new things at school without being afraid. Our students should also be willing to take advantage of the many great opportunities set before them here at Dogwood Elementary. We have so many good teachers, parents, and business partners that are all about the success of our students and that is very exciting! Again, welcome to the 4th grade at Dogwood Elementary and what should be a fantastic year.  

About Me

   My parents were missionaries in S.E. Asia, so I grew up in the jungles of Irian Jaya. My babysitters were literally cannibals. We came back to the USA every 5th year for furlough, so I got to travel all over the world. (I had a wild and interesting childhood!)   
 This is my 20th year of teaching. (8 years of 5th grade in Florida, 3 years of middle school at Mt. Pisgah, & 8 years of 5th grade here at Dogwood.) I graduated from The University of Central Florida. 
   I love lots of different sports, but my favorite sport to play is soccer. My 2nd fave is ultimate frisbee, golf, sailing, water sports, surfing, volleyball, disc golf, & soccer.
   My favorite kind of music is Contemporary Christian, Christian Rock, and Christian Rap.
   My favorite style of food is Oriental, but there really isn't much I don't like. I love Chic-fil-A, Wendy's, & Chili's. I also like Memphis Bar-B-Q.
   My favorite snacks are Cheezits, pecans, cheese crackers, & coffee.
   My favorite places to shop are Academy Sports, Bass Pro Shop, and Home Depot.
