Ms. Blasy

Hello, Vikings!  This is my 19th year teaching at Parkland.  I have taught Mathematics for 18 years and this is my second year teaching Language Arts.

I live right here in McHenry with my three kids.  Evan is in 7th grade and loves gaming and soccer.  Reese is in 5th grade and is in MJW cheer and loves animals.  Camden is in 3nd grade and loves soccer and being active outdoors.  All four of us love to watch Stranger Things, so be sure to come and chat with me about the show if you are a fan!  Some of my other favorite things are spending time with family, going boating on the Fox River, reading mystery/thriller books, shopping, and watching reality television.

Here at Parkland, I love to stay involved!  I enjoy attending club performances, sports games/meets, and staying after school with students who need some academic support.  I coach the Parkland Soccer Club and I am one of the Homework Help supervisors.  If you see me after school, be sure to say hello!

Mr. Thomas

Hi 8 Silver!

My name is Mr. Thomas and I am the 8 Silver Science and Social Studies teacher. This is my seventh year teaching at Parkland and my first year on the 8 Silver Team. I graduated from NIU and am currently enrolled there working towards my graduate degree in instructional technology. I am the advisor for the 8th-grade dance committee, the program leader for the 8th-grade Washington D.C. trip, and I will be coaching the 8th-grade volleyball team this year.

When I'm not at school, I enjoy hanging out with my wife and three kids, playing and watching sports, and playing video games. My son Noah is 11 and plays travel baseball. Maya is 9 and loves gymnastics and art classes. Lily is 6 and is definitely our wild child with a love for gardening and reading. 

I look forward to an amazing fun year with all of you!
