Mr. Thomas

Hello Bobcats!

I hope everyone is safe and healthy! I'm excited to meet all of you and look forward to an exciting year of learning!

Welcome to Berry Miller Jr High!

 I was born in South India but grew up in Mumbai. I've been a Math tutor for more than 20 years and many of my students are engineers, sailors, salesmen, businessmen, realtors, teachers, etc. I moved to the United States of America in 2003 and received my Bachelors in Education.

I've been teaching at Pearland ISD since 2014. I'm a proud recipient of the 2012 President's Volunteer Service Award for volunteering more than 200 hours at SFASU. Go JACKS! I love taking pictures, drinking coffee, online shopping, and traveling! I used to play cricket and kabaddi back in the day, but now I'm a big fan of baseball, basketball, and football! Go Astros!! Go Pearland Little League!! What an achievement! I am so proud of my team!

  • COMMUNICATION & E-LEARNING

    Welcome to e-learning! 

    • I will check and answer emails throughout the day.  You can email me anytime but I'll answer during business hours.
    • Messaging through Remind app is the quickest way to answer a simple question. But Remind is not our official means of communication, email is.
    • If I don't answer right away, please be patient, I might be helping someone else, may not have a definitive answer, or I'm in a meeting!
    • Please check Remind and Canvas for all updates. Students will have access to Canvas courses, assignments, and calendars. 
    • Skyward grade is always reliable.
    • Canvas grades sometimes don't pass over or get updated. Please don't panic if it is not updated on Skyward. I'll sort it out with the student.
