• 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.

     

    My name is Lillian Thigpen, officially, but I go by Christi Thigpen.  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!
