Bio

Johanna Thompson is a Science and Humanities teacher, 6th-grade advisor, and the Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Coordinator at Bernard Zell Anshe Emet Day School in Chicago. She spent 7 years as a middle and high school history teacher at The Pilgrims School in Los Angeles, a year abroad at the American School of Costa Rica, and 8 years in informal education at The Field Museum of Chicago before returning to the classroom. Over the course of her career, she's leveraged both digital and hands-on tools to connect students to content believing that whether virtual or IRL, sometimes the best classroom is anywhere but the classroom. Johanna is also a nationally trained SEED facilitator, working to expose systems of privilege and empower folks to dismantle the false hierarchy of human value that is at work in our lives.
