Bachelor of Science in Secondary Mathematics Education
My name is Kandace Cornutt. My family moved to Maylene, Alabama right before I started 5th grade. I grew up going to Thompson and graduated from the high school in 2010. I attended The University of Alabama where I double majored in Mathematics and Secondary Education. I graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in Secondary Mathematics Education in 2014.
After graduation I moved to Richmond, Virginia where I taught algebra and geometry at the high school level. After watching students struggle with the fundamentals of math, I took a 7th grade math position in Hendersonville, North Carolina. There I learned to teach students the joy of learning math while preparing them to be successful at the high school level. This will be my first year teaching at Thompson Middle School and I am excited to be teaching 8th grade math at the school I grew up in.
My husband and I are excited to be back in Alabama with our two pups, Tiger and Bear. We both have jobs that keep us around teenagers. We are currently in the process of adopting our first child from India! We are very excited to be living near family again as we start a family of our own!
