Cami grew up in South Africa and graduated from the University of Witwatersrand with a bachelor’s degree in history and anthropology. She then went on to receive her transvaal Higher Teaching Diploma and master’s degree in reading literacy. Her passion for teaching brought her all over the world, working with students of all ages - spanning from elementary to high school students - she even taught G.I.s while she and her husband, LOLMS’ co-founder Shelly Thompson, were stationed in Germany during the Vietnam War. Cami has taught at various public schools across Long Island, but her favorite memories are owed to the many students who came and thrived at our own beautiful LOLMS. She received her various Montessori diplomas for teaching ages 3-12 over many years, along with numerous refresher courses. Thank you to all the students at Love of Learning, for all the joyful memories and many more to come!
