My name is Walletta Thornton. This is my second year teaching at Georgetown High School. I grew up in Andrews, South Carolina and graduated from Andrews High School. I moved away in 1979, taught several places and then decided to relocate to Andrews with my husband and three children in 1992. Except for high school, all of the education has been as a bulldog: South Carolina State, Georgia State, The Citadel, and now Georgetown High School I have been teaching mathematics for the past 36 years. My lifelong career goal is to provide my students with the best mathematical education possible, while at the same time preparing them to be well-rounded problem solving citizens. I am looking forward to this school year working with the faculty, staff, students and parents of Georgetown High School Together working as a team, we can ensure that our young people are successful Please feel free to call me at work with any concerns you may have.
