Cynthia Tuggle Thomas
I attended The University of Alabama from 1986-1990 and marched with the Million Dollar Band for 2 years. I graduated with a B.S. in Secondary Education /Comprehensive Science and recently returned to complete a master's in Physics Education. After graduation my husband and I spent 6 years in the frozen north at Penn State University where I studied Educational Psychology. After six years of driving in snow, shoveling snow, and enduring endless months of snow we returned home to Alabama.
I can't believe I am about to start my 23rd year in education. I have taught at Minor High School (9 years) and Shades Valley/JCIB (10 years). In 2015 I achieved National Board Certification in Physics--it was one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences.
My husband and I have been married for 27 years and have three wonderful children. Cate is a senior, Blake is in 10th, and Austin is a 7th grader at HTMS.
