Miss Thompson has been teaching children for 17 years. She earned a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Physiology from College of the Ozarks. She is the youngest child of a single parent and at a very young age learned that hard work and a proper education are necessary to achieve any goal. She believes every child should be allowed a quality education where they are not told what to think but taught how to think. The most important things in her life are faith in Jesus Christ, family, friends, and her students.
Mrs. Garrison is in her fourth year at Legacy Academy. In 2007, she officially entered classical Christian education while homeschooling her seven children. She has been married to her husband, Darren for 33 years. Her teaching certification is from Southwest Missouri State University with a Master of Science degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders. She enjoys adding to the curiosity and joy of her students in learning about God and His creation.
Mr. Martin is a graduate from College of the Ozarks and has a minor in Classical Education and is currently pursuing his Master degree through the University of Dallas. He is passionate about teaching history and we are eager to see him excel in his role as one of our sixth & seventh grade teachers.
Mr. Martin shared, “Studying the past offers us a sense of identity and gives us many experiences to draw from. The goal, then, is to form students into critical thinkers; equipping them with knowledge and human experience. I hope that the study of history can give students a better understanding of the world in which they live, and apply that knowledge and experience to become wise individuals.”
