Ben Lippen Stories

Mrs. Jenny Thompson

Title: STEM Director

Mrs. Thompson joined the Ben Lippen family in the 2018-19 school year to grow our STEM program. She is joined by her husband (our Middle School principal) and her son, Charlie, who is in seventh grade. She loves spending her free time with her family doing things like watching college football and cheering on the BL Falcons!

What do you love most about STEM? I love STEM because it gives students a chance to design, create, or improve an idea themselves.  They are the leaders of their own learning.  It also gives them real-life experiences and allows them to think like scientists and engineers. When they finish, they are so proud of what they have accomplished.  They always amaze me with what they create!

What do you love most about teaching your students? I love that my students always teach me far more than I teach them.  They make teaching so much more than a job!
