    Governor DeWine has recently announced that all Ohio's schools will remain closed through the end of the school year. During this time, I am continuing to co-teach ELA/Reading with Mrs. Hughes and Pre-Algebra with Mr. Hadden via Google Classroom as well as provide support to my students. If you have any questions or need help with assignments, PLEASE reach out. I miss you and I want to hear from you. Parents and students, if you need some help with navigating Google classroom, I will do my best to support you or point you to someone who can. Please also see the following link with some basic information: https://www.tippcityschools.com/Page/8352 .
     
     
    Connection Hours: 11:00-11:30am and 2:30-3:00 pm
    During this timeframe, you can set up times to do Zoom or Google Hangout conferences for help with work or just to check in with me. I have already scheduled appointments with some students so if my time fills up quickly, I can make an appointment for another time of day or the following day depending on both my schedule and yours. If I'm not meeting with students by video conference or phone conference, I'll be spending that time answering your e-mails and questions on Google Classroom. I will also check e-mail at other times throughout the day but may not be able to get back to you as promptly. If my Connection Hours change for any reason, I'll let you know.

About Mrs. Thompson:
 
Education and Background:
I grew up in the country outside of the tiny village of Pitsburg, OH where I attended Franklin Monroe schools, graduating in 2010. When I was in Middle School, I first felt that I was called into the field of Special Education. In high school I had many opportunities to spend time and tutor in classrooms for students with learning disabilities, and I enjoyed it immensely. I attended Wright State University and graduated in May 2014 with a Bachelor of Science in Education for Middle Childhood Intervention Specialist. I then went on to earn my Masters in Education for Learning and Technology from Western Governor's University in January 2016.
 
Family:
I married my wonderful husband on August 9, 2014. We just welcomed our first child on July 25, 2019--a sweet baby girl named Savannah Maelene, and I just love being her mama! We also have a 3-year old, 80-lb goldendoodle named Sampson whom we welcomed into our family during the summer of 2016, and he was most certainly our first baby!
 
Interests:
In my free time, you will find me cuddling or playing with my sweet girl, taking walks with Sampson and Savannah and sometimes my mom,  shopping, crafting, (usually hair bows or headbands for Savannah or my nieces, bandanas or bow ties for Sampson, or decor for my home or the classroom),  snapping or editing photos, pinning ideas for the classroom, or spending time with friends and family. I especially enjoy spending time with my nieces and nephews, and cherish my role as an aunt to them!
 
Why I'm Here and Contact Info:
I am extremely excited to be a part of the Tipp City family and continue in the sixth year of my teaching career as an 8th Grade Intervention Specialist at TMS. I will be working primarily in the areas of Reading, Language Arts, and Math. I will also be coaching Power of the Pen (3rd year). It is my passion to work with my colleagues to provide the best possible education for all students here at TMS. It is my utmost concern that students are learning to their full potential and growing in all areas of life. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me by e-mail or the phone number listed above. My extension is 2727; however, unfortunately, I do not have a phone with my extension attached to it, so I do not have the opportunity to check my voicemail frequently; however, I understand and appreciate that some situations are best handled over the phone or by making an appointment to meet in person. If you leave a voicemail on my extension, please follow up with a quick e-mail to let me know and I'll be sure to listen and respond in a timely manner. Typically, the best time to reach me is either between 7:15 and 7:30 am or 2:30 and 3:30 pm. I am looking forward to beginning another year of working with the students, staff, parents, and community of Tipp City Schools.
