David Thompson

Elementary Music and High School Choir Teacher


I grew up down the road in Bedford, Texas, and I'm so glad to be back near my family and the places I enjoyed as a kid. I went to the University of North Texas for my Bachelor of Music in vocal performance. My family moved to Colleyville in 2018.  We are very active at First Baptist Colleyville. I have been singing with lots of different ensembles in the DFW metroplex, including Orpheus Chamber Singers, Orchestra of New Spain, and the Dallas Bach Society. My wife, Christi, is a manager in the tech department at Southwest Airlines. I have a 3rd-grade son named Ethan and a newborn son, Evan.

When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? I wanted to be a scientist.

Why do you choose to work at CCA? I choose CCA because of the wonderful environment. We get to share the gospel in our different areas of study and help guide students to follow God's plan for their life.

What is one fun fact about you? I am an opera singer!

What is your favorite book of all time? The Illustrated Man by Ray Bradbury because of the many vivid and poignant short stories.

What is one thing that can instantly make your day better? A smile and a laugh with someone!

What do you like to do for fun? I enjoy music, computers, and baseball with my family.
