Ms. Gladys Thompson


Hello! I am Gladys Thompson a Special Education Teacher at Wateree Elementary School. This is my 8th year teaching.  I am a Lancaster County native. I grew up in Kershaw and graduated from Andrew Jackson High School. I then went on to get my bachelor’s degree in Special Education from Winthrop University.

Teaching students with exceptionalities is rewarding and one of the best parts of my life.

My hobbies include reading, baking sourdough bread, listening to podcasts, and spending time with my family and friends. I have two cats, Binx and Smoke, and a dog named Sadie.  I am currently workin on my Masters degree with Francis Marion University.  My favorite place to vacation is the Ocean. I absolutely find my relaxation there.

In this classroom, I hope to teach your students what they need to know to be able to excel after Elementary school and in their future lives.
