Special Note to Parents:
As I mentioned in my newsletter sent out at the beginning of the school year, I will be on maternity leave from Friday, September 21st - Monday, November 26th. During this time I will not be available via email to discuss grades. I will get back to you upon my return. Thank you for your understanding.
My name is Candace Thompson (formerly Spurlock). This is my 4th year teaching 8th grade math at Oakland Middle School. I enjoy working with children and helping them achieve their goals through education. I believe every child should be valued and treated with respect. Education is a tool that should be used to empower a child and help him or her make a positive contribution to our world.
My husband and I have one dog named Bailee and welcomed our first child, William, in September. Murfreesboro, Tennessee has been my home for my entire life. I graduated from MTSU with my bachelor's degree and am currently pursuing my master's degree in administration and supervision. I am the head girls' basketball coach here at OMS, so you can always find me in a gymnasium.
I am looking forward to a successful 2018-2019 school year!
