The Teacher Spotlight is a weekly piece where we feature our leaders at Melissa Schools. Check back each Monday to meet a new teacher!
This week’s Teacher Spotlight shines on Heidi Thompson from Melissa Middle School, nominated by Principal Jim Miller. Mrs. Thompson teaches Spanish I and this is her sixth year in Melissa.

I love to teach about different cultures. I love lessons that really make the students think. I also love to play silly Spanish songs and then hear the students singing them in the halls.
Hope is my favorite Core Value. Without hope, none of the other values can become a priority. Students must have hope for a bright future and a better self. Once they have that hope, you can get them to work on everything else.
Working with intelligent, dedicated, passionate people.
