Regier is a teacher at Bishop James Mahoney High School in Saskatoon. From creative games and music in the classroom, to challenging educational experiences in state of the art research facilities; Regier was recognized for helping her students reach great heights.

Thompson's background of feminist literature and Indigenous land-based education influences her teaching style.
