Shannon Thompson

I graduated from Fitzgerald High School in 1993 and returned to help make a difference in the school that I love. I have been working at Fitzgerald High School for eight years as a Special Education teacher in the English department.  

I have lived in Fitzgerald all of my life and I am very close to my family who live in Fitzgerald. I share my love of teaching with my two sisters that also teach in the Ben Hill County School System.

I have been married for 26 years to my highschool sweetheart, Brandon, and we have two wonderful children.  I have a passion for animals of all kinds and share that passion with my daughter. We love adventure and enjoy skiing, white-water rafting, kayaking, amusement parks, and going to the beach.  In my free time I like to read and write poetry.
