MEET THE TEACHER!
Hello! I am Mrs. Thompson and I am glad to be an Alden-Conger Knights Fifth Grade general education and science teacher. This is my 6th year teaching at Alden-Conger and 8th year teaching overall. I stayed home with my son for several years and returned to work teaching first grade for two years, one year teaching technology and reading, and the last five years as a fifth grade teacher. It has been a joy to work with fifth grade students.
I completed a Master's in Teaching and Learning Licensure from St. Mary's University. I hold a K-6 elementary teaching license and a middle school science license. Last year, I completed an additional 20 masters level credits from Southwest State University. I had the opportunity to attend a Science Reading education books and journals, attending conferences, and taking additional courses is how I keep current with the best teaching practices. Being a lifelong learner is important to me.
When I am not teaching, I help advise the 7th grade Alden-Conger Dominators Lego League and volunteer at my church. I have been married for 21 years to my husband, Stan and have an adult son, Jake.
