Early Learning Center
Hi! My name is Shannon Lueders and I am the new Principal at Thompson Jr. High. I have been an Assistant Principal at Thompson for the past five years. Before coming to Thompson, I spent 10 years at Jefferson Middle School in the West Aurora School District as a technology teacher and dean/counselor.
I grew up in a small town in southeastern Iowa. I have a bachelor’s degree in History from Western Illinois
University in Macomb and a master’s degree in educational leadership from Aurora University.
I live in Aurora with my husband Steve. Between us we have 3 kids (Jake, Abby and Erin) and 3 dogs (Attila,
Coco and Sabrina) which makes for a very full house! I thoroughly enjoy being a part of the Thompson
community. We have awesome students and a wonderful staff!
