It is with great pleasure that the Bellflower Yearbook staff would like to announce that the 2014-2015 high school yearbook is dedicated to Mr. Thompson.
Mr. Thompson has been at BHS for 29 years during which time he became California Teacher of the Year in 1998. Watching Mr. Thompson teach history is an amazing experience. He engages his students through the use of stories, jokes, accents, and costumes in order to help bring history alive. He also facilitates several clubs on campus, including History Club, where his students devote their time to learning about global issues, and fundraising for various humanitarian causes. In addition, he has been a wonderful mentor to other teachers on our campus as well.
This is the last year that Mr. Thompson will be here at Bellflower High School, but he will always be a Buccaneer. We wish him the very best as he continues his life journey with his family in Arizona. Congratulations, Mr. Thompson, on a wonderful teaching career at Bellflower High School.
