• 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!
