Degrees and Certifications:
Bachelor’s in Nursing from Saint Louis University
Hello! My name is Sherin Thomas, and I am currently the school nurse at Marion Jordan Elementary School. This is my very first year at Marion Jordan, and I cannot wait for the school year to begin! I had always loved kids after serving in the children’s ministry at church for several years, and wanted to be a teacher for most of my life. When I was a teenager, I went through some extensive medical issues, which was pivotal in changing my career path to nursing.
I received my Bachelor’s in Nursing from Saint Louis University, and after working in corporate nursing and church ministry, I love the fact that I still ended up in the school system! Children are so resilient, and I am constantly amazed by their endurance through the ups and downs that so many experience. I am thrilled to be one of the bridges between the health and educational needs of our students.
Some fun facts about me: I love to read, grab a good cup of coffee with friends, travel, explore different cultures and foods, green smoothies, watching movies, and chicken wings! For my birthday one year, instead of giving me flowers, my friends made me a chicken wing bouquet. Best gift ever! I love learning and look forward to expanding my knowledge and skill set in the realm of school nursing.
I hope this helps you get to know me a bit better; please feel most welcome to stop by my office, give me a call, or shoot me an email if you have any questions! I look forward to getting to know the Marion Jordan community and helping in any way I can.
Sherin Thomas, RN BSN
