Erin Thomson has been an assistant director and assistant lecturer with Science, Discovery and the Universe since 2018, after spending 12 years teaching in the public school system in Maryland. She graduated from the University of Maryland (UMD) with a Bachelor of Science in Education, and continued her studies at Bowie State University, where she earned a Master of Education and a post-graduate certificate in educational administration.
A Scholars alum herself, Thomson was reunited with the Scholars community after 20+ years.

She enjoys exercising with her two dogs and relaxing with a good book and a mug of tea.
