About Ms. Thompson


About Ms. Thompson

I am so thrilled to be joining the Loring Family this year!  This will be my 7th year working in Minneapolis Public Schools.  I started out as a Special Education Assistant in the Autism Program at Ramsey Middle School. For the past four years, I have been teaching 5th grade at Lake Nokomis Community School. I have a Bachelor of Design in Architecture from the University of Minnesota, and my Masters in Elementary Education from the University of St. Thomas. 

My partner and I are proud residents of North Minneapolis, along with our dog Dax.  I am so excited to grow my connections to the community and be working so close to home!

In my free time, I love to race sailboats, camp and hike and ride bikes (and just generally be outside), read, cook, and work on my veggie garden!  I grew up in Wisconsin and am still a die hard Packer fan. Don’t hold it against me.  I am also a proud auntie to four great nieces and nephews, whom I love to visit in our neighbor state.

Teaching is really my passion and I feel so privileged to be able to learn alongside my students and watch them grow.  Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or needs!
