Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Sue Hearne
This is my 7th year at Thompson Junior High School as a Special Education Teacher. The 2020-2021 school year marks my 10th year in education. I attended Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, where I received my bachelor’s degree in computer science. After working in the Information Technology field for nearly 20 years, I decided it was time for a career change. After working as a paraprofessional for a few years, I then attended Illinois’ Aurora University where I received my master’s degree in special education. I have found my true passion working with junior high aged students and assisting them in discovering more about their unique abilities.
This year, I am teaching 6th and 7th grade Direct Math as well as Study Skills classes. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any quesitons you may have.
