About Mr. Thompson

I've been teaching at West since 1994 (longer than anyone on staff--yes, I'm old). I have a BS in Business Education with a minor in English (from Appalachian State University) and also hold my national board certification. I'm a member of the North Carolina Business and Information Technology Hall of Fame (2009), a former NC Executive Board Member, and FBLA Advisor of the Year (2008). I was the 2003 West Stanly High School and Stanly County Schools Teacher of the Year, and in 2010 I won the Orus B. Sutton Award as the NC Business and Information Technology Teacher of the Year. 

Lest you think I'm just some kind of teaching/computer nerd (hold your comments!), I'm also the varsity boys basketball coach. I'm married to my lovely wife Emily (who teaches middle school art at Cannon School in Concord) and we have a pug named Shelby(who does not teach art). In my spare time, you'll find me working in my yard or on a boat somewhere.

*Feel free to contact me via email at john.thompson@stanlycountyschools.org  or by phone at (704) 781-8960 (you may leave a message or text this number as well).

Mr. T is Bad
 
Oh, and I teach the Adobe Academy courses so if you're interested in learning how to code websites, dabble in graphic design or do some really cool video editing, come this way.  I'm also the FBLA adviser and men's varsity basketball coach.
