Mrs. Erin Thompson
I am very excited to begin my first year as the AIG specialist at Valle Crucis! This is my ninth year teaching; I also taught seven years as the 6th grade math and science teacher at Valle Crucis, and one year as the 6th grade teachers at Mabel Elementary; before that I was an assistant for over 5 years at Hardin Park. I am proud to teach alongside so many amazing Watauga County teachers!
I am a native of Charlotte, and I became a permanent resident of the High Country after I began attending ASU. I first received a BA in Anthropology but soon realized that teaching is my passion, so I went back to ASU one more time! I love the High Country and know that it was always meant to be my home. My husband, Joel, and I live in Ashe County with our 5 year old daughter, Ruby, one mischievous cat and a new doggy that loves to steal slippers. My hobbies include making jewelry, home improvement projects, and dancing. (I love the middle school dances!)
This is going to be a great year! I look forward to meeting my new students and empbracing new challenges. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me. The best time to reach me by phone is after school, but feel free to email me any time, and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
