Mrs. Thigpen's First Grade Class

Hello First Grade

My name is Melissa Thigpen. This will be my 3rd year teaching for Troy ISD. I earned my degree from Abilene Christian University in Elementary Education and I am certified to teach EC-4th grade as well as ESL. I have spent most of my time teaching preschool in private, Christian daycare, and mother’s-day-out programs, but also spent two years teaching 1st and 2nd grade in Abilene. Our family spent 3 years living in Ft. Worth, while my husband attended Texas A&M University School of Law. After he graduated, we quickly packed up and headed to Troy. My husband grew up here, and it has always been our dream to raise our family here. We have five children, they keep us very busy and we wouldn’t have it any other way!
