I am Kaylin Thomson (Keyes) and I am the EMU Bright Futures Site Coordinator at Roosevelt-McGrath in Wayne. I received my Bachelor’s in Education with a Language Arts major from Michigan State University in 2009 and also received my endorsement in Cognitive Impairments K-12 through Eastern Michigan University in 2011.  After college I was a classroom teacher for two years in Northern Michigan and then moved back home and spent the next five years here within the Wayne-Westland Community School District as a teacher in various buildings. While I was teaching, I also worked part-time after-school for EMU Bright Futures as a Student Program Instructor at David Hicks Elementary in Inkster. I have been the Site Coordinator at Roosevelt-McGrath since our program began here in 2018! I have been married to my husband Bradley since 2020 and together we have one lovable but mischievous Labrador Retriever named Walter. In my spare time I love watching movies, hanging out with my amazing family, camping & crafting! I am also a huge fan of all things Disney!
