Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year.
My name is Mr. Thompson. I have been teaching at Dunbar for 5 years and have also taught at Lincoln Middle School. I have coached soccer at various levels, including High School, and have coach a First Lego League Robotics team to the state competition. I am a veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan. Math and Science is what I teach and am very excited about those two subjects.
I have attended both Western Illinois University and Southern Illinois University. While at WIU I played Div I soccer and earned a Fine Arts degree. SIUE is where I earned my Elementary Education degree with honors.
Your child’s education is very important to me as it is with the entire staff at Dunbar Elementary. Your child will be challenged and supported in their educational goals. Seeing students develop better understandings and make connections in the material is very exciting and brings joy to all of us at Dunbar.
This is going to be a very exciting year filled with brand new challenges and opportunities. We will be working and learning together to give your child the best experience we can with the challenges ahead.
