Biographical Sketch

Mrs. Thompson is a native to the Monroe, LA area and taught high school science in the parish school system prior to her current decade-long experience at ULM. She enjoys explaining how biological processes work to eager students; especially non-major students who find "science" difficult to understand.

Over the past few years, Mrs. Thompson has been involved with the Museum of Natural History located on the ULM campus. She has also Directed the Region III Science & Engineering Fair for a total of 7 out of the past 11 years. Her passion for engaging students in science content has led her to visit area elementary and middle schools and assist teachers with hosting their own school science fairs.
