Mrs. Thompson

Mrs. Dorothy Thompson has been with SKDS since 2003. She teaches grades sixth-eighth.

Mrs. Thompson brings to her teaching a wealth of previous experience. During her 14-year career as a wildlife manager with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, she worked on three national wildlife refuges. Throughout this former experience, Mrs. Thompson worked with teachers to promote environmental education.

Why did Mrs. Thompson become a teacher? She said, “To share my love of learning with young people" and "to foster in them a sense of curiosity about the natural world."

When asked to share her favorite thing about her job, Mrs. Thompson replied, "I enjoy the excitement and enthusiasm that can be seen in students as they enjoy learning new things. I enjoy being part of the school "family" of faculty, staff, parents, and students. An added benefit is to be working in a place where prayer and learning go hand in hand."

Mrs. Thompson is originally from New Jersey. She and her husband Chris have three sons who all attended SKDS (formerly UCPS). In her spare time, Mrs. Thompson enjoys power walking, gardening, hiking, camping, and bird watching.

Words of advice from Mrs. Thompson: “Be positive; set short-term and long-term goals; believe in yourself and share your God-given gifts and talents with others throughout your life.”

Mrs. Thompson’s favorite quotation: “Make the most of yourself, for that is all there is of you.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
