Mrs. Susan Mitchell
I began my teaching career as a physical education teacher at Thompson Elementary School in 1985. After receiving my Masters in Guidance Counseling, I served as a school counselor at Thompson Elementary, Creek View Elementary, and Thompson Intermediate for a total of 16 years. Ten years ago I began teaching gifted education at Thompson Intermediate School and I absolutely love it. I am very fond of 4th and 5th graders and enjoy teaching and learning from them. I consider myself a life long learner.
I have lived in Shelby County my entire life and met my husband, Harold, when I began teaching. We have two children who were both in the gifted education program. In my free time I enjoy reading, playing with our dogs, wakesurfing, and being outdoors with my family and friends.
