I was born and raised in St. Louis MO. I am a proud product of St. Louis Public Schools. I am also a proud alumni member of Yeatman Middle School. I attended Beaumont High School. I graduated from Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville with a Bachelor’s of Science in Mass Communications Television/Radio with a minor in Black American Studies. I also have my Master’s Degree in Educational Administration from the University of Missouri St.Louis. I am certified to teach 5th-9th Grade Language Arts and Social Studies.
Cogito Ergo Sum! (I Think; Therefore I Exist!)
Hello Students and Parents!
Welcome to 6th Grade at Yeatman-Liddell College Preparatory Middle School! I am excited to meet you all virtually on the 31st of August. The beginning of this year is like no other. However, I'm confident that we will successfully navigate virtual learning together. Yes, my expectations are high for you in my class. But, there is no doubt in my mind that you will meet my expectations, many of you will exceed my expectations! Your education is important to me. We will actively be about the business of teaching and learning in my classroom.
Attendance in class will be of the utmost priority. You must log in everyday to EACH class period on time. Being RESPECTFUL to yourself, your classmates and ALL your teachers is not an option. Create a learning space at your home that is free from distractions. Be prepared with a writing utensil and paper. Adherence to these simple requests will make our virtual learning experience enjoyable for everyone.
Please take advantage of the distance learning tutorials on the Yeatman homepage. Also, by using your school email address and password, you can find assignments on Microsoft Teams as well. If you don't remember your email address, please have your parent email me and I will forward it to you in that way. Please be safe during this time. This Too Shall Pass! If we all maintain the "social distancing" mandates, the sooner we return back to school.
I encourage you to READ for pleasure as much as possible! I will issue extra credit to those of you who READ! Please check my Virtual Learning (assisgnments) page for updates weekly! Your life is VALUABLE, please "shelter in place" and enjoy this time with your families.
Please email me at Marie.Thompson@slps.org
Virtual Hours: 8:15 a.m. to 3:12 p.m.
Please speak with your parents about completing the 2020 Census. It is very vital that we are all counted. Being included in the census helps with funding for schools, neighborhoods, it impacts all areas of society. From a history perspective, completing the Census will allow future generations to research their ancestors with accuracy. Encourage your parents to fill out the paper form you received in the mail, or they can go online and complete it at my2020census.gov. I have included an information page and a optional class assignment on the Assignment Page. These are both worth 100 points each.
