Thompson, John


Hemingway QuotesWelcome to a new school year. This will be my 15th year teaching at Hornedo Middle School. I have been teaching close to 20 years. My degree is in Creative Writing from UTEP.

     This year my 6th grade classes will study World Culture  and my 7th grade classes will study Texas History.

      Students will need two composition notebooks . We will use one composition notebook for an interactive notebook and the second notebook for Cornell Notes. Students will also need the following: wide rule paper, and pencils , and colored pencils or markers, scissors, and glue for activities. Students will also need a package of 100, 3 by 5 index cards, a letter size envelope, and a 4 gig USB storage device to save their work during the course of the year. My first period class needs to bring 2 boxes of tissues,a container of antibacterial wipes, hand sanitizer, and a combination lock for their locker.

Thank you,

Mr. Thompson
