Ms. Thames Chellie Schwantes


Welcome to Ms. Thames 8th Grade Math and Algebra 1

It is a great day to be a TITIAN at OTMS! I am so excited to be your teacher this year and look forward to what the new year brings. This is my fifth year at OTMS and my seventh year with Madison County Schools.
I am a graduate from Belhaven University and I received my masters in Curriculum and Instructions of Mathematics from Concordia University. I have two boys: Matt who is 19 and currently a student at Holmes Community College, and Drew who is 17 and currently a student at Madison Central. I have three dogs: Nick which is a bullmastiff, Hagen which is an english bulldog, and Harley which is a yorkie. In my spare time I enjoy the beach, cooking with my friends, and watching football.
My passion is teaching and I look forward to sharing this educational journey with you and your student. Please visit this site often to see updates on assignments and announcements.
