Mrs. Sarah Sotrop
I grew up in Huntsville, AL and attended Huntsville High School. I attended Auburn University (WAR EAGLE!!), where I received a B.S. in organismal biology. While in undergrad, I helped teach biology labs and tutored student-athletes in various science subjects, which quickly helped me realize my passion for teaching. After completing my B.S., I decided to study science education, and received my M. Ed. in general science education from Auburn University as well.
Right after finishing graduate school, my husband and I got married and moved to Baton Rouge, LA, where he was finishing veterinary school at LSU. While in Baton Rouge, I taught 6th grade advanced science at McKinley Middle Academic Magnet School. When my husband graduated and accepted a position at a vet clinic in Birmingham, I was thrilled to move back to my home state. This is my third year at Thompson High School, and I could not be happier here. The administrators and staff truly go above and beyond to make this a great place. It's a great day to be a warrior!!
