About the Teacher
My name is Joy Thigpen. I graduated from Louisiana State University in the Spring of 2010 with a bachelor's degree in biology with a chemistry minor and a concentration in secondary education. In the Fall of 2010, I enrolled at LSU in a graduate program and received my Masters of Education in gifted/talented. Upon completing my master’s program, I obtained a position as a 5th grade math and science teacher in Ascension Parish. It was then that I realized how much I enjoyed teaching math and decided to get my secondary mathematics certification.
I enjoy teaching math at Pearl River High School, my alma mater and I look forward to a great school year.
