Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Heather Hampton
I attended Eastern Illinois University, in Charleston, where I received my bachelor’s degree in elementary education. During my college years, I spent summers working with junior high students at a day camp in Naperville, Ill. It was here that I found my love for working with kids in this age group. Along with my degree in elementary education, I ended up with junior high endorsements in mathematics, reading and social studies. I currently teach sixth grade math at Thompson Junior High School. When I started at Thompson 20 years ago, I used to teach language arts too!
In addition to my bachelor’s degree, I also have a master’s degree in administration from North Central College, in Naperville. I enjoy sharing with my students the wonders of math, and I am having a great time with our new math textbook this year. The technology that I work with every day is amazing. I'm looking forward to a fabulous year.
