About Sr. Thompson
I didn't start out wanting to teach Spanish. I took French for one semester in High School and got a "C". I knew that languages were not for me, but life had other plans. I was given the opportunity to live two months in the Dominican Republic and a year in Puerto Rico nearly twenty years ago, and my love of the language and culture grew from there. I have been married for fifteen happy years, and I have a thirteen-year-old and a six-year-old who are my world.
I am a father and husband first, so I spent my first ten years of adulthood working in grocery stores while slowly progressing toward a degree in Spanish. I graduated from Southern Utah University in 2012, and I was urged by my professors to continue on to graduate school. Therefore, I spent a year studying and teaching at the University of Kansas (Rock Chalk Jayhawk!) before deciding that teaching, and not research, was my real passion. I taught at Walsh and Cedar Valley Middle Schools, and I have most recently taught at Early College High in Round Rock ISD.
I hope to impart my love of Hispanic language and culture in a way that will give all of my students a far different experience than I had in High School. I've since learned Portuguese, and I have some study in Italian and Amharic (Ethiopian). Let's have a killer school year!
