Ms. Tonya Thompson
I am the language arts, social studies, and science teacher for the 5th & 6th grades. I recently began my 9th year of teaching at Weiner Elementary. For the ten years before I began teaching at WES, I was a pre-k director/educator, as well as an instructor in the Teacher Education Department at Arkansas State University.
I grew up in Jonesboro, graduating from Jonesboro High School in 1994. I received my BSE in Elementary Education from the University of Mississippi in 1998 and my MSE in Early Childhood Education from Arkansas State University in 1999.
I’ve known I wanted to be a teacher since I was in the second grade. My teacher, Dona Goodnight, loved me, made learning fun, and treated me like her own. It is my goal for all of my students to feel the same about me as I did about Mrs. Goodnight!
I’ve taught in several schools, but none have felt like home, until I began teaching at Weiner Elementary.
