Welcome to Mr. Thompson's Webpage!
I was born in Cleveland, Ohio where I lived for two years. As a result, I am a diehard Cleveland sports fan. My family then moved to Youngstown, OH. I grew up loving the outdoors and playing sports with my two brothers. While in high school I played football and wrestled. I attended Muskingum College, earning a BA in Education with concentration in mathematics and social studies.
My first job was teaching 7th grade social studies in a suburb of Cincinnati called Mason. At Mason, I was the head wrestling coach for the middle school. After teaching there for two years I decided I was tired of Ohio weather and moved to Colorado. I started teaching math to expulsion and alternative high school students in Harrison School District 2.
My first year at Challenger Middle School was the 2011-12 school year. I currently teach math and coach wrestling.
In my spare time, I work at the Briargate YMCA as a personal trainer. In my free time I hike, camp, sail, snow ski, play sports, and read.
