Ms. Laura Thompson was born in Ohio and has moved every year and a half to two years until she was about fifteen due to her father’s job. Her family then settled in Texas where she went to high school in Houston and then attended Baylor University. After deciding that she “did not want to grow up yet”, Ms. Thompson went to graduate school in Iowa. She came back to Texas due to preferences, began teaching in Park Crest Middle School, and has been in Pflugerville ever since. Ms. Thompson uses the methods of teaching that consists of getting students involved in her classroom discussions and letting them figure it out for themselves. She then explains she considers herself an understandable teacher but tough at times because “you got a tough test to deal with”, but then adds humor in it to make it a little bit more tolerable.
