Mr. Anthony Thompson
Welcome to my school webpage!
My name is Mr. Thompson. I graduated from ECU with a teaching degree in 1999, and this is my 22nd school year of teaching. I have taught at the Elementary, Middle, and High School levels, I have taught all subjects, including EC.
I believe that every student can do well in school, and in life, if two things are learned:
- The student has learned how to read, understand what is read, and is able to correctly answer questions about what was read.
- The student has learned how to follow directions.
I am teaching 5th grade this year, self-contained class, all core subject areas. Besides paying attention in class, and completing homework, students must be able to read well to solve the EOG test questions – because even many of the math questions are word problems. Studies show that the best way to become a good reader is to read, and to read a variety of texts. Please be sure that your student reads at least 30 minutes a day. Find material you both are interested in and share the reading experience!
Have a great summer!
