Hi, My name is Kim Thompson and I would like to welcome you and your child to my fourth grade class. I am the fourth grade reading teacher at GCB! I am thrilled to be working with your child. I hope to develop a love for reading so this may become a lifelong passion. Throughout this school year, we will work on reading a variety of genres in class. We will read many types of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, dramas, etc. We will learn to respond to questions using the RACE (Restate-Answer-Cite-Explain) method. Outside of the classroom, it is recommended that your child read for 20 minutes each night to develop their fluency, comprehension, and vocabulary.
I am a WKU graduate and a proud teacher of HCS. I attended HCS's myself and have taught in this district since 1995. I have a 15 year old at CHHS and a recent CHHS graduate who is currently attending training in the National Guard. When he returns he will then pursue his college career.
