Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! My name is Mariah Thompson, and I am SO excited to be teaching 1st Grade at FCES again this year! I was born and raised in central Minnesota - Saint Cloud, MN to be exact. My boyfriend and I moved to Washington last summer. About 3 years ago we visited the Seattle + Snoqualmie Valley area and LOVED it. We love being near the mountains and we’re VERY excited to continue exploring the PNW!
I graduated from Winona State University (WSU – Woohoo Warriors!) with a degree in Elementary Education K-6. FUN FACT - WSU was founded as an institution devoted to education. WSU was the first Normal School for teacher training west of the Mississippi. During my time at Winona State, I was fortunate enough to be able to student teach in a 1st Grade classroom (across the mighty Mississippi in Wisconsin!) In addition, I have had experiences with students up to the 4th Grade. I have also worked with students as young as 3 years old! This will be my second year teaching at Fall City Elementary. I’m very lucky to have found such an amazing community and school to continue my career as an educator!
When I’m not at school I like to get crafty, be outside, FaceTime family and friends, do laps around Target, and explore.
I’m looking forward to a wonderful year of learning and growing with you and your child! PLEASE don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions! I would love to hear from you!
