Amanda Thigpen

Welcome to Riverwood Middle School! 

I graduated from ECU (Go Pirates!!) in 2011 with my BS in Special Education. For the past few years,  I have worked with students all across the specturm and absolutely LOVE what I do.  I have a passion for those with special needs; to teach them the skills they need in life to become as successfull and independent as possible. It's my job to speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves!!
