    Welcome to my 6th Grade World History Page! My name is Andrew Thompson and I will be your student's Social Studies teacher for the year! I have been in the district for 3 years prior as a Paraprofessional, and I have coached Middle School and High School Baseball in Columbia for 4 years now. I graduated from Columbia in 2010 and went on to get my Bachelor's at Missouri State University where I also played Club Baseball for the University. I moved to Houston, Texas for a few summers and worked as a summer camp manager for 3 years at Houston's First Baptist Church before I moved back to Columbia to pursue teaching. I received my teaching certification from McKendree University and here we are today!

    In my spare time I enjoy getting out on the golf course or singing with one of the two music groups I am in: AnSaKa & The Bearded Millenials. I am a die hard fan of the St. Louis Blues and go to the games with my dad. We have been season ticket holders since 1995. Maybe one day they will parade the Stanley Cup down Market Street!

    I am extremely excited for the year ahead! Please feel free to contact me with any questions throughout the year. Communication is key! Below is a link to my YouTube page where I post videos of events in class.
