Mrs. Missy Thompson
Hello! My name is Missy Thompson. I've been a Donald First Grade teacher for the past 22 years! I have also taught in Arkansas and at Hedrick Elementary. This will be my 38th year of doing what I love the most - teaching children to be avid readers and lifelong learners! It's an exciting time to be a Dolphin at the STEM Acadamy at Donald Elementary.
First grade is a year of discovery as we build on the foundation for not only academics, but also learning to be critical thinkers and good citizens. I love watching the transformation that occurs as students grow, mature, and master skills that follow them on the road to success! I am so excited to meet my students and their families.
I am from Arkansas and am a proud graduate of the University of Arkansas with a Bachelors in Education. I am also certified to teach English as a Second Language. We moved to Texas in 1996 for my husband's job.
I've been married for almost 38 years to my husband, Marshall, and have 2 grown children, Robert and Laura. We also have 2 furry children, a Westie named Jack, and a Cairn Terrier named Zoe. A grandpuppy named Toby spends time with us, too!
I'm an avid college football fan and love my Arkansas Razorbacks! I can "Call the Hogs - Wooo Pig Sooie" with the best of them. We're also TCU fans and cheer for the Horned Frogs. Saturdays in the fall are game days at our house. I also love to read, spend time with family and friends, and travel. I love Dr. Pepper and Mexican food!
