Mrs. Jo Ellen Backmon

  I am a 5th grade teacher at Thompson Intermediate School.  I taught for 4 years in a private school, and for the last 19 years I have taught in the Alabaster area (Creek View and TIS)  I joined the TIS family in 2000, when the school was developed.  My favorite subject to teach is math.  Social Studies is also a favorite of mine.  I have traveled with the 5th grade several times to Washington D.C., Jamestown, and Williamsburg, where history comes alive.  Teaching is a passion for me.  I aways enjoy interacting with the students and watching them grow and develop into extraordinary young men and women.  

          I am married with two grown sons, Steven and Phillip.  I have a 4 year old grandson, Jase, that holds my heart.
