Claire Thompson

English Teacher/Mentor

Claire is an English mastermind! She takes the most reluctant readers and writers and transforms her classroom into an engaging and safe literature haven. She double majored in English and Gender, Sexuality, and Women Studies, with a minor in Creative Writing from Virginia Commonwealth University, and her passion for the English language radiates throughout her walls.

 On her days off, Claire enjoys home projects but nothing more than spending a lazy day binging “Face Off” episodes. When it comes to her guilty pleasures, she couldn’t choose between tacos and pizza if her life depended on it, but she can tell you one thing for sure: Early 2000s Pop Punk and Emo soundtracks are underrated masterpieces.
