Shelby Thompson, Spanish
Ms. Shelby Thompson started with South Pointe High School at the beginning of Block 2, during our 19/20 school year. She is currently on as our Spanish teacher. She believes taking the opportunity to learn another language is extremely beneficial in expanding connections with other people and cultures, something the world could always use more of.
Ms. Thompson was born and raised in a very small town in central Illinois, on the borders of Iowa and Missouri. She has a Bachelor of Science in Biology from Illinois College in Jacksonville, Illinois, but actually completed a double-major in both Biology and Spanish. The highlight of her college career was studying abroad in Cuenca, Ecuador the Spring semester of her Junior year, where she studied the Spanish language and interned at Amaru Zoo and Biopark on the outskirts of the city.
Ms. Thompson moved to Arizona over a year ago with her boyfriend, Joey. Together they have one dog, Leo, and two cats, Baker and Myles, that run their house. Ms. Thompson loves to spend her free time cooking, exploring, and going to the dog park, but will never turn down a lazy day at home.
