Hi everyone! My name is Shannon Thompson, and I'm excited to get to know you this year. I graduated from Utah Valley University with a BS in Biology and a Chemistry minor. After graduating I worked as a research chemist. I enjoyed the work, but I discovered that what I most wanted to do was teach. I'm married and I have two sons who are 16 and 6. We also have 2 border collies, chickens, various small animals and a very long-suffering cat. In my free time I enjoy hiking, CrossFit, acting, gardening, and playing with my kids.

I love science. I believe that scientific knowledge and discovery are not only useful but beautiful and exciting, and that learning to think like a scientist will be valuable to you for the rest of your life. My philosophies on science and teaching are best described by the two great philosophers Calvin and Hobbes:
