Read on to learn about one of the educators making our small schools creative and caring.

Mrs. Thompson, Third Grade Teacher, Academy Tucson Elementary School

Third graders are busy at Academy of Tucson. No one knows this better than Mrs. Thompson. As a 14-year faculty member, Mrs. Thompson cultivates third graders who are ready for the world around them.

Lovingly calling her classroom ‘adventurous’, Mrs. Thompson teaches her kids to explore and understand through long term projects, classroom presentations, field trips and community awareness. Mrs. Thompson’s third graders can be found typing away in their Chrome Books, practicing spelling, or prepping their next ‘Speak Up’ assignment.

Mrs. Thompson is very proud of her three granddaughters, who just so happen to attend Academy of Tucson!
