Hello. I am excited about the beginning of a new year for both myself and our students!
I am a 1991 graduate of Bainbridge High School. After graduation, I attended Valdosta State University briefly and then joined the United States Army. I had the pleasure of serving our country in various states as well as overseas in Japan.
I am married to Xavier L. Close, and have two sons, Devin C. Thompson, who graduated from Georgia Southern University in December of 2017, and Darryl D. Thompson, who graduated from Valdosta State University in May of 2019 and is a 2nd Lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force.
I graduated from Bainbridge College in 2010 with two Associates Degrees. One in Psychology and one in Sociology. From there, I attended Thomas University where I earned my BSW (Bachelor's of Social Work Degree) in May of 2012. I have several years of experience in the mental health setting including extensive training in dual diagnosis treatment facilities.
In 2015, I made the decision to transition from the mental health field to entering the field of Education. I am currently certified in Special Education General Curriculum. I look forward to serving our county to the best of my ability. I am readily and easily available and am willing to assist ANY child in the improvement and/or advancement of his/her education.
I also serve as the Adviser for the B.H.S. Chapter of the National Honor Society. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your student's status, please feel free to contact me at any time!
Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can assist you and your child in any way! God Bless!!!
