Ms. Fran Thompson

St. Joseph Position:  Interim Principal 

Favorite prayer: God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can, and Wisdom to know the difference.

 

Why I love Catholic school education:

Catholic schools provide a unique educational setting which incorporates Worship, Study, and Service.

 

Education and Training:

I received a Bachelor of Science from UNT in Elementary Education and Special Education and a Masters of Catholic School Leadership from University of Dallas.

 

Where I have lived:

I grew up in Dallas, TX. and have lived here my entire life. I attended St. Monica Catholic School and Ursuline Academy. I have a large Italian family and many childhood friends.    

 

My professional experience:

I happily served St. Patrick School in Dallas as principal, assistant principal and teacher for thirty-one years. Most recently, I was employed at a local Dallas museum and focused on non-profit management, customer service and volunteer recruitment. I am so pleased to be serving SJCS and back in Catholic education!

 

My family:

My daughter and son-in-law live in Fort Worth. My daughter is a social worker and currently working for Safe Haven as a housing caseworker, and my son-in-law is a retail manager for Whole Earth Provisions. I am fortunate to live close to my mother and father and I am involved in their lives.

 

Something you might not know about me:

I have five brothers and no sisters!

 

My prayer for the students of St. Joseph:

Practice the Golden Rule throughout your lives. It will serve you well.    

“Do to others whatever you would like them to do to you. This is the essence of all that is taught in the law and the prophets.”
