Mrs. Jessica Thompson
I am an Oakman girl through and through! I am a 1996 graduate of Oakman High School! I serve as Oakman Middle School's ARI Reading Specialist, and I am dedicated to making sure that my students (all 700ish) receive the quality education that I feel I received from both Oakman schools. I have been teaching for fifteen years. Of those fifteen, I have spent eleven as a Wildcat! I began my career as a Townley Tiger. I taught second grade for three years, fifth grade for six years, and sixth grade for one year. I have served as Reading Specialist for five years. I have served as PST Chairperson, softball coach, quiz bowl sponsor, member of the writing team, and now as the fishing sponsor.
I am married to my high school sweetheart, Daniel. I have two children, Sawyer and Bryleigh. They keep me pretty busy! Bryleigh is a competitive gymnast, and Sawyer plays baseball and is a member of the OHS Bass Team.
