My name is Christy Thompson and I teach first grade in room 138. I am so excited to be a part of the Kenwood school and community! This will be my 26th year teaching! It's gone by fast!
I was born in Pontiac, Michigan and moved to MN when I was in preschool. I grew up in Roseville and after college, lived all over the cities. I have lived in Richfield for the past 18 years.
I graduated from Augsburg College with degrees in Elementary Education and Psychology. I received my MA in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of St. Thomas. I have taught High-Five, kindergarten, and first grade in both Minneapolis Schools and out in Mound.
Before becoming a licensed teacher, I worked in many daycares and early childhood centers, and was a before/after school supervisor in Minnetonka, working mainly with 3rd and 4th graders. I have also worked in an urgent care, in retail, and was a pharmacy technician for 4 years.
I have an amazing family. I'm married and have two daughters who are in the 7th and 9th grades.
I also have a house full of animals! We have 3 dogs-a lab & ??? mix named Lexi (she's our trouble maker), a puggle named Eli, and a Lhasa Apso named Harley. As if that weren't enough, we also have 2 guinea pigs named Buster and Cameron.
When I get a few minutes of my own, I like to read mysteries.
I am looking forward to a fantastic year with my wonderful and energetic students! They have always teach ME so much!
