Welcome to 2020 -2021 school year! My name is Linde Thompson and I am beginning my ninth year as the school counselor here at Hyer. I know this year will present a unique set of challenges and we understand it is difficult to live with the uncertainty of what this school year will hold. No matter what environment school is happening in for your child, I am so excited to get to know our new students and a new kindergarten class!
I graduated with my Bachelors in 1997 from Texas A&M University and began my career in Frisco ISD. I spent fifteen years as a classroom teacher in kindergarten, first, and third grades. I was fortunate to join the HPISD family many years ago as a first-grade teacher at Bradfield Elementary. As my passion grew for helping students develop academically, socially, and emotionally, I decided school counseling was the next chapter in my career in education. I pursued a Masters in School Counseling and graduated in 2009.
