  • Hi!  My name is Melanie Thompson, Library Media Specialist at Thorpe J. Gordon Elementary.   I've taught in Jefferson City for the past 21 of the 28 years I've been a teacher. I love to learn new things and find ways to make learning engaging.   I am proud to say that I've 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. My family does a lot of traveling, hiking and camping.  I have 2 grown kids and 3 dogs.
