My name is Mirna Thomson.  I grew up in Mission, Texas and attended Sharyland I.S.D. from kindergarten through 12th grade.  After high school, I attended the University of Texas at Pan American where I received a Bachelors degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with an English minor.  My entire professional career has been at Sharyland I.S.D.  I have just begun my 24th year as a first grade teacher, and I still love it!  The growth from the beginning of first grade to the end of the year is so great that I can't imagine teaching any other grade level.  Teaching is a truly rewarding job, and I cannot imagine doing anything else!  I look forward to working with your children, and I know it will be another successful year for all of us.
