About Mr. Thompson
I am originally from Brookhaven, Mississippi. I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry from the University of Southern Mississippi. I then began graduate research working on inhibiting a pro-inflammatory molecule called HMGB1. I enjoyed teaching freshman chemistry courses so much during that time that I became a chemistry teacher! I finished my master’s in biology from Mississippi State University and enjoy teaching courses in chemistry, biology, microbiology, genetics, etc.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my wife, Jane, and my 1 year old daughter, Ella. I also enjoy watching basketball and participating in endurance sports. My biggest passion is cycling.
