Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Debi Thompson

I'm excited to be a part of the Dena Boer campus! I have been with Salida Union school district for 8 years and prior to that I was a special education teacher with Stanislaus County Office of Education. I have found Salida to be a really wonderful and welcoming community.

I grew up in New York state but have spent most of my adult life here in sunny California, so I feel like a native! In my spare time I enjoy traveling, exercising and spending time with my family.

My goal is to help each child reach his or her full potential. I encourage my students to embrace challenges, work hard and to always be kind to others.
