Mr. Thomas

Mr. Thomas was the recipient of the Earth Science Teacher of the Year Award given by The Rocky Mountain Association of Geologists (RMAG) and the RMAG Foundation.

Matt Thomas earned a Bachelor’s in General Science and Earth Science and a Master’s in Secondary Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Education. He utilizes the excellent geology available in Colorado to get his students outside and learn about geology through experience was well as classroom studies augmented with web-based/digital experiences. He also exposes them to the next steps in their geology education and geology careers through the Mining for Talent program, a partnership between Jefferson County Public Schools and Colorado School of Mines. He has been teaching for 22 years.

Mr. Thomas says: “Receiving this award is a great honor. Being my first ever teaching award, it feels amazing to be acknowledged by colleagues and industry professionals for something that I have been passionate about for the past 20 years. I am excited to see how many more doors open to help my students and myself with more experiential and hands-on learning in the geosciences at Alameda International.”
