Hello everyone!
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 are expecting our first child in the fall of 2018. Murfreesboro, Tennessee has been my home for my entire life. I graduated from MTSU with my bachelor's degree and am pursuing my master's degree in administration and supervision in the fall. 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!
