Mrs. Erin Thompson

I am very excited to begin my third year as the AIG specialist at Valle Crucis!  This is my eleventh year teaching; I have also taught 6th grade math and science as well as all subjects in 6th, and I was an assistant in early elementary grades.  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 have a six year old daughter, Ruby, one mischievous cat, and sweet dog that may really be a fainting goat.  My hobbies include sci fi, making jewelry, home improvement projects, and dancing.  (Bring back middle school dances!)

I am so glad to have my students back in the school building!  I look forward to meeting my new students and catching up with my current students.  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.

Best regards,

Erin Thompson
