Mrs. Sharon Kahl
Hello Thompson Tigers!
I currently teach sixth and seventh grade science. My educational background includes a master’s degree in teaching from Aurora University, in Aurora, Ill., a master’s degree in leadership from Lewis University, Romeoville, and a bachelor’s in biology from Northern Illinois University, DeKalb. I have worked in the educational system for approximately 24 years but have been at Thompson Junior High School for the past 15 years. I have had the honor of being recognized by the Illinois State Board of Education and School District 308 with the “Those who Excel” teaching award.
Although my experience working with students ranges from junior high through college, I truly enjoy working at the junior high level. I do my best to create a welcoming environment that supports student autonomy and to encourage students to take ownership of their learning. I look forward to working with you and your student to provide the best educational experience possible.
