Hello! I’m Dale Thomas, and I am from Houston, Texas. I have a BA in American Studies from Yale University and an MA in Curriculum and Instruction from Louisiana State University. As a Rice faculty kid, though, I grew up on and around this campus, so Rice truly feels like home to me. I have worked in education at many levels, from teaching elementary school, planning curriculum for K-12 international schools, and serving as the Will Rice College Coordinator here at Rice. I am excited to help students find their own paths through Academic Advising. Outside of the office, I enjoy singing, playing trivia either online or at local pubs, and spending time with my four grown children (three of whom attended Rice as undergrads). I look forward to working with you!
