• I am so happy to be your teacher!

    This year is going to be full of fun, learning, and growing. You’ll meet new friends, learn lots of new skills, and make wonderful new memories. I can’t wait!

    My name is Mrs. Amanda Thompson and I'm super happy to be the new third grade teacher at Wren Elementary! I first moved to the Wren area with my family in 2000.  I now live just a few minutes from Wren Elementary with my husband, Jonathan, and two children:  JT (who is 6) and Colton (who is 3)!

    My favorite thing to do is spend time with my family and friends.  I also love reading...whenever I can find time for it!  My favorite book series of all time is Harry Potter.  You should check out the awesome poster I have in my classroom!  I also love any book by Rick Riodan (heard of Percy Jackson?  He wrote the books!).

    Teaching is the absolute best job in the world and I am so fortunate to call it my profession.  I have been teaching since 2010, but teaching was not my first job.  When I graduated from Wren High School in 2003 I went to Greenville Technical College and received my computer technology degree.  I decided computers were great and all...but teaching was where my heart was.  I graduated from USC Upstate with my Elementary Degree and went on to teach at my first school, Ravenel Elementary, in Seneca.  I am currently working on my Masters at SWU.

    I'm so excited to be closer to home and teaching in the community I live in.  Teaching is my passion and I take my calling very seriously.
