What a joy it has been to be a Media Specialist with Poudre School District for 20 years! Nine of those years have been at Werner Elementary. I have taught for 30 years starting in Scottsbluff, NE, teaching Title Reading/Math and 5th Grade. Forty-one years ago, Mr. Thompson and I were married. Since then we have been very blessed with 4 precious children, 3 son-in-laws and 11 fantastic grandchildren. We also have a cat and a tarantula. :) In my free time, I like to spend time in the mountains and with family. Reading, crafting, making jewelry, working part-time at an antique jewelry store in Estes Park, hiking, and volunteering are also some my favorite things to do. I am so excited to start my 9th year with the fabulous students, staff and families at Werner Elementary!
