  • Hi!  My name is Melanie Thompson, Library Media Specialist at Thorpe J. Gordon Elementary.   I have taught in Jefferson City for the last 15 of the 23 years I've been a teacher. I love to learn new things and find new ways to make learning engaging.   I am proud to say that I have presented at conferences around the country.  I have a B.S. in Education with a Master's in Information Science and Learning Technologies. 
    I believe that students learn best when they are engaged and interested.  It is my goal to create learning activities that allow students to be creative and to collaborate.  I want my students to be life-long learners who know how to access information and seek out answers to their questions.
    I love photography, reading, and writing.  Another hobby of mine is community theater.  Recently I have discovered how fun stand-up paddle boarding is!   I have 2 kids and 4 dogs.   I am happy that I have been able to combine my love of teaching with my enjoyment of traveling and hope to do more so in the future.
