My name is Randi Thackeray, and this is my first year teaching at MSLA. I am happy to call Denver home and moved back to Colorado 5 years ago. I received a master’s degree at the University of Denver in curriculum and instruction and a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at ASU. I have taught grades 2nd, 4th, and now 5th.
I have also supported non-profit efforts like S.O.U.L Uganda, which fosters education in Ugandan communities. Even though my service has ranged globally, I am most passionate about building better communities locally.
When I am not teaching; I love to eat at my favorite Denver restaurants, visit the public library, walk around my favorite parks, and be my nephew’s pen pal.
