Mrs. Julie Thompson


    Hello! My name is Julie Thompson and I am a special education teacher at Pioneer. I feel lucky to be a part of the very talented staff at Pioneer. Teaching is my passion and I love that I get the opportunity to help students develop a life-long love of learning.

   Here is a little information about me. I have always lived in Illinois but in different parts of the state, even though I grew up in nearby Homer Glen. Because of this, I have taught in several different school districts and at different grade levels. Prior to teaching, I also worked as a teacher's aide. I have now been with Valley View for several years.

   I received my bachelor's degree in Sociology from Eastern Illinois University and my Master's degree in Special Education from Lewis University. 

  I hope to help your child have a successful and memorable year.
