Assistant Principal (8th Grade) - Karen Thompson
I have been working in Walton County Schools as a Assistant Principal since 2002. I am an alumnus of Central Gwinnett High School in Lawrenceville and Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville, Georgia. I played collegiate basketball for 4 years and softball for one. My degrees were completed at GC&SU with a Bachelors of Arts in Spanish, Masters of Public Administration, Masters of Education-Leadership and Specialists in Education-Leadership. The first two degrees were on an athletic scholarship and the last two degrees were earned on an academic scholarship.
I am fluent in Spanish and have traveled the world extensively. Some of my greatest educational achievements are being awarded the National Scholar for Educators- Administrators in Leadership and the Fulbright Scholar Award. This was issued by the U.S. Department of State. This award allowed me to visit Mexico for a semester as an Administrator for grades 6-12. Being the recipient of the prestigious Teachers Exchange Award for educators, the Embassy of Spain sent me to the Canary Islands for a semester to work with educators from all over the world in Spanish Translation. I feel that all of these experiences have led me to be a well rounded administrator for your child. May this year be the best for your family and child here at Loganville Middle School.
