About Mrs. Thornton

I'm so excited to be an instructional assistant at UP Elementary this year!  I taught preschool for 11 years before this, and I have been a substitute in the district for several years.  I have three children who all went to UP, as did I, so my love for this school runs deep!
I graduated from Baylor University with an accounting degree, then attended the University of North Texas to take education classes and become a certified teacher.  My children are Cammy, a senior at Stephen F. Austin, Cara, a freshman at Texas A&M, and Cade, a 5th grader at MIS.  I have been married to Joel for 28 years. Most of my free time revolves around doing things with my family and friends.
I love teaching and I love kids, and I am looking forward to a wonderful year!
