About Ms. Thompson
My name is Kalyn Thompson and I am very excited for my first year as a part of the AZACS team. I will be an Instructional Lead for the Functional Academic Cohort teaching both ELA and World History.
Although I'm new to this team, I'm not new to the world of special education. About four and a half years ago, I began working as a habilitation provider for children on the autism spectrum. I quickly discovered I had a passion for working with this community, especially in the school setting, and moved on to a paraprofessional position for several years. Since then, I've graduated from ASU with my Bachelor's degree in Psychology and intend to pursue my Master's degree in Special Education and earn a BCBA certification. This is a field I am very passionate about and absolutely love being a part of.
I'm very excited for this school year, and look forward to working with all our wonderful students!
