Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Thompson

My name is Amanda Thompson, and I am proud to be an East High School Mustang!  I am from Desoto County, MS, and I received a Bachelor's Degree in English and history from the University of Mississippi (Hotty Toddy!), and my Masters in Education from Arkansas State University.  This will be my first year at East, and I am so excited. I have been at Overton High School for the past 3 years.

I have a true passion for reading, writing, literature, and much more!!  Helping each child progress in all areas of their development—academic, social, language, and more—is a challenge that I am honored to accept daily.  I strive to create a community of learners that nurtures this growth in a positive, fun environment. 

Personally, I have been married for almost 15 years and have two fantastic sons who are 23 and 11.  We love to spend time with our friends and family as well as watch our 11-year-old play football and basketball! 

I look forward to working with you as partners in your child’s growth and development!!
