Ms. Candace Gilbert-Decker
I am so excited to be your child's 2nd grade teacher! This is my 11th year at Thayer Elementary. I was born and raised in the area and have loved growing up here. I attended Missouri State Univeristy where I received my undergrad in Elementary Education, and my Masters from Columbia College in Educational Leadership - Administration. I have a 10 year old daughter who is in 5th grade, and a 5 year old daughter who starts Kindergarten this year at Thayer. We love playing board games, tennis, and playing at the park, when we are not at school.
All students can learn and will develop confidence in themselves. You will always be your child's first teacher, and now I have the pleasure of assisting you.
