Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Mary Engfer
I have been a reading teacher at Thompson Junior High School for 15 years, and this is my fifth year teaching the AVID elective classes.
I grew up in Naperville, and I graduated from Naperville North High School in 2001. I had many passionate and dedicated teachers throughout the years, and I always knew that I was destined to become a teacher. To start my journey, I attended North Central College, in Naperville. I graduated in 2005 with a major in elementary education and a double minor in reading and English. That same year, I was hired at Thompson to be a reading teacher. Later in 2013, I graduated from Aurora University with my master's degree in educational technology.
While I have been at Thompson, I have had the pleasure of working with wonderful students who have taught me more than I ever thought I could learn. I am privileged to be a part of a staff that is encouraging and supportive to both students and faculty.
