Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Thompson is so excited to start her 16th year of teaching at Timber Creek Elementary! She taught 4th grade for four years before landing in Kindergarten. She always says she has the best two jobs in the world; being a mom and a kindergarten teacher! She LOVES her job and the relationships she builds with her students. She believes the academic and social skills children learn in kindergarten can set the foundation for a successful life. If you peek into her classroom, you might see dancing, singing and a Rock, Paper, Scissors Tournament!
Ms. Thompson grew up in Las Cruces, New Mexico, the middle child of three girls. She moved to Flower Mound after graduating high school and started a utility construction company with her husband. Ms. Thompson was often in a ditch with a shovel (can you believe that!) or in the office bidding on new jobs. She later moved to Baton Rouge to work for an engineering company and her beautiful daughter Avery was born. In 2002, she moved back to Flower Mound to live closer to her family and decided to go back to school!
In 2007, Ms. Thompson graduated with honors from Texas Woman’s University with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. She was so excited to interview for a teaching job at Timber Creek, she wore two different black shoes to the interview! She does not think anyone noticed.
Ms. Thompson enjoys watching sports and being outdoors with her crazy dogs, Parker and Bean. Her family gets together to play games and over the summer, she traveled to Greece with her sister Melanie. She loves to spend time with her daughter Avery, who just graduated from The University of Texas at Austin with a degree in Chemistry. They love traveling together and have explored baseball stadiums on the east coast and had the chance to visit some of our beautiful National Parks.
