Degrees and Certifications:
Hello, I am Coach Thorson and I'm so excited to start my first year at Era ISD. This is my 7th year in education, which was predominately in the elementary grades. I have lived my whole life just up the road in Sanger, where I attended Sanger Schools. While at Sanger High School, I was a 4yr letterman in Basketball and Softball. As a freshman I was the starting catcher for the Inaugural SHS softball team. After high school I received a full Softball Scholarship to North Central Texas College, where I earned All-Conference Defensive Player of the Year and All-Region Offensive Player of the Year. I went on to earn my BA in Psychology at the University of North Texas, while remaining at NCTC as Assistant Softball Coach. I later was an Assistant Softball Coach at Celina High School where we won the State Championship.
I have been married to my husband, Richard, for 15 years this past April. We have 3 wonderful children and a Great Dane named Belle. Our son Cash is 13 and in the 8th grade, our daughter Kami is 12 and in the 7th grade, and daughter Kadi Jo is 7 and in the 2nd grade. We are all excited to be part of the Era Hornet Family!
In our spare time we love vacationing with our big family at Walt Disney World in Florida. We also love baseball, softball, basketball, hunting, camping and spending time with our family and friends lounging by the pool!
I am looking forward to a fantastic year of learning!
