As the new school year begins, I would like to introduce myself and welcome you and your child in my classroom. My name is Jennifer Thompson. I have been married to my wonderful husband, Darrell, for 9 years. He is a teacher and coach at Crosby High School. We have a beautiful 7 ½ year girl named Samantha. She will be in 2nd grade this yearat Barrett Primary. Our family also includes a chocolate lab named Sadie, yellow lab named Mitch, and a cat named Socks. This is my 17th year teaching. I taught for 10 years in Baytown, then three years in Lewisville, TX, and this is my fourth year at Crosby Kindergarten Center. All 17 years have been with Kindergarten. I received my degree in Elementary Education from Purdue University in Lafayette, Indiana. I also have a Reading Endorsement.
