Mrs. Thompson

Fifth Grade Teacher
Hello! My name is Mrs. Thompson and I am one of the 7th grade special education teachers at Prairie Ridge Middle School. I support students on the 7J team. I've been in education for a total of 17 years and have had the honor to work in the Ankeny district for the last 10 years. I taught for 8 years in Urbandale before starting in Ankeny. My ultimate goal is for my students to feel empowered to work toward personal learning goals and to become independent young adults.

I graduated from Iowa State in 2001 and earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in elementary education with an endorsement in special education K-8. I have obtained my reading endorsement and just completed my Master's degree from Drake. Go Bulldogs!

When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband and my two beautiful girls. We love spending time at the pool, riding our bikes, or dancing to music. In my spare time I also enjoy reading, spending time with close friends, and watching Dancing with the Stars with my girls.

I love what I do and look forward to working with your child in ensuring he/she feels success in and outside of the school day. My goal is to ensure your students' needs are met and that they leave 7th grade with the tools they need to reach their full potential. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me via email: or call Northeast at (515) 965-9620.
