Mrs. Whitney Thornton

Hi there! I am Whitney Thornton, Academic Trainer at KHMS!

As an Academic Trainer - like an instructional coach - I am in classrooms a lot, mainly to observe and provide feedback for teachers. So students will see me in class, as well as in hallways, at lunch, etc.  This year, I am support for Reading/Language Arts (RLA) and Social Studies. 

I am a mother to two daughters, and married to a fellow teacher. I enjoy singing, dancing, reading and watching movies. And occasionally, fishing!  This is my third year as Academic Trainer and I truly, truly LOVE what I do.


I have been in education for twenty + years, and have taught grade levels 3-12 in various schools and districts. I've been with Judson ISD for about ten years, including a few years here as a 7th grade RLA teacher.   

I thoroughly enjoy teaching both adults and kids, and bringing a smile to everyone's face as often as I can!
