We are so excited to welcome all of our students back in the building! My name is Rebecca Thompson and it is an honor to introduce myself as the new principal of Tomahawk Creek Middle School. I am beyond excited to continue my journey with this dynamic school community. It is my privilege to work alongside such an engaged staff and community to employ the mission and vision of the school by growing students to become more critical thinkers and productive citizens. Although this is my second year as principal, I have been at Tomahawk Creek since we opened the doors in 2008. I started my journey as a 6th grade math teacher and moved into administration a few years later. Tomahawk Creek is my home and I have been fortunate to see the growth and changes throughout the years.
Our administrative team has not changed and we look forward to continuing to serve our teachers and students. Mr. Teasley will remain with his students and act as our 8th grade administrator. Dr. Atkinson will be moving to the 7th grade to continue on with his students, Mrs. Walker will be serving our newest Timberwolves in 6th grade, and Mrs. Breeden, our Associate Principal, will assume more leadership roles and responsibilities. We are all excited to get the year going and have the best year yet at TCMS!
In closing, please know that our doors are always open to you as communication is the key to a successful partnership. I always welcome conversation and positive input. It is extremely important to me that we come back together as a school community to support our students after a few really challenging years. We all have work to do and we will be stronger together because of it!
Let’s all remember to keep our students as the primary focus as we work together…they deserve it!
