Degrees and Certifications:
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 is my second year teaching at Thompson Middle School and I love teaching 8th grade math at the school I grew up in.
My husband and I are excited to be back in Alabama with our son, Andrew, and two pups, Tiger and Bear.
