North Platte High School | Special Education
Hello, my name is Patty Thompson and I am a native of North Platte, Nebraska. I am also a graduate of North Platte High School. I received my Associates degree from Mid-Plain Community College, my Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of NE-Kearney with an endorsement in General Education K-6, and SPED K-12, and my Master’s Degree from Doane College in Curriculum and Instruction.
My family includes my husband, Joseph D. who is now retired and my daughter Gina who resides in California. We also have two dachshunds who believe in running the household. My interest in education came at a later age. This is my 16th year teaching in the North Platte Public system.
As a SPED instructor, I believe my goal is to assist students in becoming independent, learning the tools that they need to be part of the community, and to live successfully. They can then take pride in themselves for their accomplishments.
