Hello, my name is Laura Thompson, and I am the Mild to Moderate Special Needs teacher at Hillview Jr. High School. I have been working with Special Needs students in the Pittsburg Unified School Districtit for five years. I have an Associate Degree in Arts and Humanities from Los Medanos College, and a Bachelor's Degree in Linguistics, along with a minor in Education from UC. Berkeley. Although this school year is not starting exactly how we would have all liked, I am excited to get to know each and everyone one of my students. I am certain that together we will have fun, explore the world around us, and most of all, we will help each other grow into outstanding individuals. More than ever, the world needs us to be kind and caring with each other! We are all in this together! Welcome Warriors!
