Let me tell you a little about myself; my name is Mrs. Thompson and I am the Special Education/Life Skills teacher at Junior High. Becoming a teacher was my childhood dream. I have worked in many school systems over the years as a volunteer, substitute, aide, student teacher and now as a teacher. I love to see children surpass expectations, build confidence and succeed. The smallest victories make me so happy!
I am originally from Killeen, TX. I am an Army brat, my dad served 23 years. My husband joined the Army in 2010 and since has medically retired. I loved being an Army wife! I have been blessed with many opportunities and challenges that have made me a stronger person because of the Army. I am also a mother of two children; a boy and a girl, ages thirteen and
eleven. My son is involved with many sports and 4H, my daughter is involved in cheer, tumbling and 4H.
My hobbies include photography, Photoshop, small do-it-yourself crafts, baking and decorating cakes and scrap-booking. This year I took on the new journey of being a surrogate mother, I am currently pregnant with twin boys and will be going on maternity leave sometime this fall.
We have a new aide in our classroom this year, Mrs. Myers will be joining the classroom and we also have our aide from last year, Mrs. Reeder. They are both fantastic!
This year we will hit reading VERY rigorously! Please keep an eye out for homework and reading logs!
I look forward to working with you and your children.
"Believe in them and they will succeed."
