Tal Thompson teaches fourth grade at Lake Carolina Elementary – Upper Campus in Richland District 2. Just in his second year at the school, he has made a big impression. And now he’s in the running the Top Teacher Search. The contest is put on by “Live! With Kelly and Michael.” As part of Thompson’s nomination, a parent wrote a letter on his behalf. It reads, in part, “Tal is intently focused on teaching his students a combination of knowledge, perseverance, independence, and bravery that will not only teach the curriculum, but also create young leaders, lifelong learners and confident citizens.” Congratulation to Thompson for this recognition. Voting wraps up tomorrow at 8 AM, so follow this link to learn more about the program and to vote.
