Welcome to Ms. Thigpen's class!
Whether in Math 8 or Algebra 1 Honors, we are going to work together to make this YOUR best year! Please feel free to contact me at any time with any questions or concerns.
I have been teaching middle school since January 2000. I began my career as an educator in Georgia, just outside of my hometown of Augusta, GA. Three years ago I decided to move to the upstate of SC for a variety of reasons; the most important being that I absolutely LOVE it here! I have taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade, as well as at the university level. I have taught reading, writing, social studies, and math. Teaching math to middle school students is absolutely my favorite and truly my passion!
