    Hello! Welcome to 8th grade STEM! I am very excited about this school year. 

    About the Teacher

    HELLO!!! I am Mrs. Thigpen! This is my fourth-year teaching at Madison Middle School and my sixth year working for Madison County Schools. My husband Jason and I have been married for 14 years. We have 3 children, Colton, who is a 7th grader at MMS, Caroline who is in 4th grade and Crawford who is 3.We have a six month old Labradoodle named Chester. I have a bachelor’s degree from the University of Alabama in Human Development and Family Studies and a master’s degree in education from Belhaven University. As a family we love watching Alabama football, going to the beach, hiking and bike riding. ROLL TIDE!! 

    This year is going to look a little different than years past. Not only am I teaching students face to face at Madison Middle School but I am also teaching students across Madison County that are enrolled in the virtual program.  It is my hope that we can work as a team to have a successful year in STEM.

    I am looking forward to working with your child and expanding their knowledge on all things STEM. This is going to be a great year. Please email me with any concerns or questions at ethigpen@madison-schools.com.

    For in person students at Madison Middle School, it is very important that you bring your own set of earbuds to class as I will not be able to lend any out due to safety precautions as mandated by Madison County Schools.  Students may have to complete projects by themselves to prevent spread of germs.
