Hello! I am Makenzie Thomas and I am a 7th grade math and science teacher at ECMS. Yes, your kiddo could have me for both! I LOVE science and math and I am glad I did not have to chose just one. I was certainly a math nerd throughout school and blossomed in science while in college at GSU. I am beyond thrilled to share knowledge in these subject with my current and future students.
Now I am sure you are wondering who in the world I am, so here is a little about me. I am not from the area, or even Georgia. I was born in Texas and moved around several times because my father was in the military. It was nice to live in different places and make new friends, although it got harder as I got older. We moved to the area and I attended GSU at the Armstrong campus. During my time in their education program, I had the honor to be introduced to Effingham County Middle School. I instantly fell in love with the environment of the school, the teachers, students, and community. It truly felt like home which is why I begged my program mentor to allow me back for my senior year. Now I am here and working my dream job!
On top of teaching science and math, I am the assistant softball coach and a soccer coach. Outside of school I am a volleyball coach which is my passion. I played throughout middle and high school and even on travel ball teams. I stopped playing my senior year due to some medical issues. I love sports and believe they can do a lot for the students if approached in a positive manner.
Lastly, as you may have seen in my pictures I have several animals but no kids of my own yet. My baby is that cute, little, black cat and her name is Brooklyn. She is 13 years old and this seems to blow my students away because they are about the same age!
Thank you for reading a little about me, and PLEASE contact me at anytime if you have any questions or concerns. Let's have a great year! Go Panthers!
