Mrs. Liza Abbott



My name is Liza Abbott and I graduated from the University of Montevallo with a Bachelor's Degree in Education of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. I completed my Masters in Instructional Leadership from West Alabama in December 2021.

I spent my first five years in public school before transferring to the Alabama School for the Deaf (ASD). I taught at ASD for twelve and a half years before coming to Thompson. My love for ASL started when I was in 5th grade and we signed the chorus of our graduation song. I have been hooked ever since and I am excited to share my love for the Deaf community and ASL with my students. My husband and I have been married since 2004 and we have two beautiful children. We also have two puppies that are spoiled rotten. We are huge Alabama fans!! Roll Tide!!
