Mrs. Mary-Ellen Thompson

I am Mrs. Mary-Ellen Thompson and I am married to a wonderful husband named Chuck and we have two amazing daughters.  Katie, (30) is a graduate of USC and lives and works in Washington D.C. She is married and she and her husband have a precious 18 month old boy named Jack.  Emma, (28) is also a graduate of USC and works in Columbia. Emma and her husband  bought their first house in Irmo and proudly have 2 golden retriever dogs.  In my spare time, I love to spend time on Lake Murray  either fishing, swimming , or going for a relaxing night time cruise. We also have 3 dogs to help fill our empty house since our girls are grown and on their own. 

I have recently returned to school to receive my Masters Degree in Education. This is my fifth year teaching 1st grade and I have 22 years experience in an elementary school setting.  I have a strong passion for working with students.  It is my mission to instill a love for learning and for treat all others with kindness and respect. I want my students to become life long learners ready to change the world!
