Mrs. Holly Thigpen
♥ Welcome! ♥
Hello! My name is Mrs. Thigpen and I am SO excited to be a part of this wonderful Petal School District family! More importantly, I am THRILLED to be your new teacher! It is going to be a fun year full of lots of learning and new adventures!
♥ About Me! ♥
I was born and raised in Vicksburg, MS. After graduating high school, I moved to Starkville, MS to attend college. It was there that I met my wonderful husband, Wesley. We moved to Petal about three years ago from Raymond, MS. While in Raymond, I taught 4th grade Social Studies and Intervention. After we moved to Petal I began teaching 1st grade, which I absolutely LOVE! We have one adorable, energetic little boy named Maddox. He is 2 years old and keeps us on our toes! We also have a dog, Brinkley, who is quite the handful. When I am not teaching or planning awesome things for us to do at school… I enjoy shopping, going to the beach, and spending quality time with friends and family.
♥ My Education ♥
After graduating high school in 2007, I attended Mississippi State University. GO BULLDOGS! While at MSU, I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education as well as endorsements in Science and Social Studies. It was there that I fell in love with the field of education, and I couldn’t wait to become a teacher!
