Born and raised in South Jamaica (Queens, NY) as a child of eleven, Dr. Virginia Thompson often would pass by York College, aspiring to be an insider, not just an outsider looking in. In 1993, her aspiration came to fruition when she was given the opportunity to enter as a freshman at York College, and was encouraged to follow her dreams in studying mathematics. She obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics from York College in 1998, which laid an excellent foundation for her as she continued her studies at Teachers College (Columbia University). There, she acquired her Master of Arts degree in Mathematics Education in 2000, and went on to complete a doctoral degree in Mathematics Education. Recently York College invited Dr. Thompson to teach in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science as a Doctoral Lecturer. She was eager and elated to return back to her home, and teach along with faculty members who once taught her.
