Amy Thompson,
Program Director: Frest Start Tutoring 

Amy Thompson is the program director of Fresh Start Tutoring.  Although she didn’t become a teacher until her youngest child was in school, she felt called to teaching as her ministry.  She is a graduate of the State University College at Geneseo with a Master of Science in Reading and a Bachelor of Science in Special/Elementary Education.  She has over 26 years of teaching experience and has taught kindergarten, fifth and sixth grade, as well as special education at both high school and elementary levels. “I am passionate about this program for several reasons.  Although most people are aware of the importance of reading and writing, they may not be aware of the research that supports the positive benefits of volunteering their time.  I love that not only are we helping students in reading and math, we are also helping our volunteers live a fuller healthier life.  This program is a win, win situation for everyone involved,” Amy says.  In addition to teaching and tutoring, Amy enjoys spending time vacationing with her husband, children and seven grandchildren.  She loves to garden, sew, and of course read!
