• Welcome to Mrs. Thornton's Web Site.
       As a former graduate of Carman-Ainsworth, I am excited to be back and working in such a wonderful district.  This year (22-23) is my nineteenth year working here. Originally a math teacher, I am now helping the district in several other capacities. At the district level, I am the District Assessment Coordinator. At the high school, I am the Dual Enrollment Coordinator, working with students and our partnering colleges to help CA students earn college credit. Please see my Dual Enrollment page for more information on ways you can earn college credits while still in high school.
       Outside of school, I am a proud mother of two. Lorelei is in the 11th grade here at CAHS, and part of our CA STEM Early College program. Liam is in 7th grade at CAMS.  I love having my kids in Carman-Ainsworth schools because I know that they have some of the best teachers!  As a parent, I know what it feels like to put your child's learning in someone else's hands. It is my promise that I will treat every student like they are my own, and will do whatever it takes to help them succeed in school.   
        If you need to reach me, the best way is by emailing me at jthornto@carmanainsworth.org.  I check my email on a daily basis and will be sure to get back with you as soon as possible.  Or call me at 591-5503.
