Christie Thompson earned her Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science at Virginia Commonwealth University. Christie teaches Physical Education, Weightlifting, and Varsity Sports Conditioning at the Tilden Campus for middle school and high school. She also helps lead the SLI Mentor Campus Connection. She enjoys teaching people about health and fitness, playing basketball, and spending time with her family. Christie’s favorite Bible verse is Jeremiah 29:11. Her greatest influence is her brother because he spent time teaching her about basketball.

“I can see the gap we have in society about the importance of physical education and the importance of exercise in a young person’s life so they can develop healthy habits. I believe God wants us to take care of and discipline our bodies as well as our souls.”
