Welcome to Mrs. Tompkins' Classes

My Education and Professional Background

Journalism &

My Educational Philosophy

I lived history as photojournalist and picture editor for 17 years, covering everything from natural disasters to presidential campaigns. Photojournalism took me to six countries, and won me a Pulitzer Prize in 1998. I love teenagers. As a teacher my hope is that my classroom be a creative, insightful, and happy refuge for all students. And they they leave with knowledge every day. Enthusiasm, respect, and responsibity are paramount to successful learning and teaching. I'm married to Jeff.
