My name is Amanda Thompson and currently, I am the Special Education Director as well as the special education teacher. I grew up in Tushka, where I graduated high school then later graduated from Southeastern State University with a Special Education Degree. I also have certifications in Early Childhood Education, Elementary Education, Mild/Moderate Disabilities, and Severe/Profound Disabilities. In addition to my teaching duties, I also assist with high school basketball.
I am married to Jeff and we have 4 kids, Jacob, Blake, Beau, and Annie, that attend Stringtown as well. We are active in sports and they show pigs. We moved to Stringtown about two years ago, along with all my chickens. I love to spend time with my chickens when we aren’t at a ballgame or showing pigs.
I have been at Stringtown for 8 years and have no plans to go anywhere else. I love my job here and the people I work alongside.
