Welcome to Ms. Thompson's 4th grade class. This is my 18th year at Oak Ridge Elementary and my 21st year teaching. I am incredibly excited about another amazing year at Oak Ridge Elementary. I attended Illinois State for my undergraduate program and UNCG for my Masters program. I have been National Board Certified for 16 years.
I am looking forward to having your child as a student in my classroom this year. My goal is always to cherish and challenge your child. I am committed to creating a classroom environment where your child is a valued, trusted, and integral part of our family of learners. In order to accomplish this, I have planned a variety of activities to emphasize and reinforce this goal. It is my hope that you will support and encourage this vision at home as well.
