My name is Erin Thompson. I have graduated from Trinity Western University in Langley, British Colombia with a Bachelors of Arts in Art and Spanish. I have a daughter in first grader and my husband is a machinist. I grew up in the Northwest, and I have made California my new home for the last 15 years. I have co-taught 1st and 2nd grade in Washington State and 3rd and 4th grade for 3 years in Mexico as a missionary to the deaf. My passions are the Arts and Languages and I have been blessed to share these passions with children all over the world. My years of experience with children has been shaped by my involvement as a youth leader, coach, missionary, camp counselor, Sunday school teacher, special education assistant, and mother. I have the Lord to thank for all of these opportunities that have shaped me into a teacher today.
One of my favorite verses that I first learned as a believer was Proverbs 3:5-6, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understandings, in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will lead your path straight.” God continues to show me His glory and truth through this verse and others. I am honored to be joining the staff at Plymouth Christian Elementary.
