     My name is Claudia Thompson and I am so excited to be your child's 4th grade math teacher. I graduated from Troy University with a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education in 2016. I obtained my masters degree in Elementary Education from the University of West Alabama in 2022. My husband Josh and I have two boys, Weston (2YO) and Reese (4mO) I am so happy to have your child in my class this year and I can not wait to watch them grow, learn, and have fun in 4th grade! My philosophy of education is to meet the needs of each and every child that I teach. I believe that all children can learn and I will strive everyday to encourage students. Every classroom presents a unique community of learners that varies not only in abilities but also in learning styles. My role as a teacher is to give children the tools to expand upon their learnings. To accomplish this goal, I will teach to the needs of each child so that all learners can feel capable and successful. Parental involvement and communication are very important to me. Please do not hesitate to reach out via phone, email, or remind.
