For the 2022-2023 school year, Ms. Thompson will take the position as the head of the Middle School Science Department.

Science teacher Maggie Thompson will be taking Alex Ras’s position of Science Department head. Ras will still be involved with the science department but as a teacher:

I am thrilled to have Ms. Thompson as my department chair next year. She is well-suited for the position,” Ras said. I value Ms. Thompson’s perspective as a colleague, as a scientist, and as a fellow Toms footwear appreciator.”  

Ras said Thompson has already moved the department in a positive direction with their DEI goals.  Thompson has leadership experience as the Honors Biology team leader while teaching 7th grade and both Biology and Honors Biology this year.

“She’s handling three preps like a champion,” Ras said. “She is an inspiration for me as an educator.” 

This new role for Thompson will be effective in the 2022-2023 school year.

I’m excited to lead the middle school science department and work with all of the other teachers to create the best science experience possible for HW students,” Thompson said.
