Mrs. Marisa Thomson - English, Journalism and Yearbook Adviser
This is my fifth year teaching at Lake Dallas High School. I grew up in the Austin area, but I've been in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area for the better part of 18 years.
I've been in the communications field for more than 10 years, mainly focusing on corporate communications and public relations. I earned my Bachelors Degree in Journalism from The University of Texas at Arlington in 2005, where I worked on our college paper, The Shorthorn.
I got my first taste of teaching as a teaching assistant while earning my Masters Degree in Strategic Communication from The University of North Texas in 2014.
I love literature, so being able to teach English and Journalism is the best of both worlds for me.
