Reimagining Education

Cici Tompkins

Director of Outreach

For over 25 years, Cici has been involved in education with the firm belief that investing in our children is the most effective way of solving our societal problems. Cici’s career in education started with teaching at several private schools and in 2001, after earning a Master’s in Educational Psychology from the University of Colorado at Denver, Cici founded the Boulder Family School.

After 9 years of being an educator in Colorado, and five years in St. Louis area schools, Cici felt frustrated with our failing education system. She started on CEAM’s outreach team canvassing and making phone calls in May of 2013.

Now, as the director of outreach, she feels privileged to be working across the state to educate and mobilize advocates to help their voices be heard by education decision-makers on the local level as well as at the state capitol.
