Hello! My name is Marissa Thompson! This is my second year teaching at Millers Creek in the third grade. I graduated from Appalachian State University in 2014. I went on to teach 7th and 8th grade math at Valle Crucis for a semester. I recently moved to Purlear in May. I am excited about having a short drive to work. I have a 2 1/2 year old daughter named Avery, and two stepdaughters (Autumn and Savannah). I love teaching third grade because my third grade teacher is the one who inspired me to become an educator! I love to see students enjoying learning as much as I did when I was a child. I look forward to meeting my future students and parents at open house! We are going to have an AWESOME year!
