Mrs. Thompson

Welcome first graders! I’m very excited to get to know all of you. This will be my first
year as a first-grade teacher and that makes your class extra special to me. My goal is
to equip you with the proper knowledge and skills for you to be successful throughout
the school year.

I grew up in Ramona, CA, and moved to El Centro, CA where I received my Bachelor of
Science in Human Services at The University of Phoenix. I did my internship in some
1st-grade classes, and it was there that I fell in love with teaching. I then moved to
Arizona in 2015 and have taught Early Child Care for three years. I consider myself to be
a consistent, firm, and caring teacher. My approach is to keep my students accountable
and apply positive affirmations as much as possible.

I am married to a very supportive husband and have three wonderful children. My oldest
will be part of the Toros family for the 2023/2024 school year as well. We love to travel
and find activities to do as a family which includes our favorites such as traveling to the
beach and visiting a museum. My personal hobbies include hiking, reading, and spending
time with my family.

I am so glad to be part of the Toros Family and I can’t wait to work with both you and
your parents. See you soon!
