Mrs. Erica Thompson
Welcome to my teacher page! My name is Erica Thompson and this will be my third year teaching at Athens High School. I am so proud to be a part of this high school and I look forward to being your biology teacher. I can't wait to meet you all, and I look forward to growing your understanding of biology!
I have seven years of teaching experience, and have previously taught 7th and 8th grade science, Chemistry, and Physics. I attended the University of Alabama in Huntsville, graduating in 2012 with a Bachelors of Science in Biology and a double minor in Chemistry and Secondary Education. I am certified in Biology and General Science. In addition to teaching freshman biology, I am also the sponsor of the Athens High School chapter of National Honor Society.
My husband Brent and I have been married for six years, and we have one son, Reid. He will turn three years old this year! . We live in Decatur, Alabama with our two labrador retrievers, Jackson and Doc Holliday. We are all big Alabama football/atheletics fans, as Brent graduated from there in 2006.
In my free time, I enjoy volunteering my time as a member of the Junior League of Morgan County. JLMC is a philanthropy organization that fundraises for several other organizations including the Decatur-Morgan Hospital Foundation, Parents and Children Together, and Families And Children Experiencing Separation. Additinally, I am an alumnae of the Lambda Kappa Chapter of Delta Zeta, and am active with my alumna chapter, in Huntsville. I am also a major reading nerd. I love to read and my favorite series include: Harry Potter, Outlander, and Game of Thrones.
