Miss Cathy Carpenter

This is my 23rd year teaching high school and my 17th year at Lugoff-Elgin High School.  Previously I taught at Union Comprehensive High School in Union, South Carolina.  I have a Bachelor's degree in Chemistry from Columbia College and 4 years of graduate work in Chemistry at Clemson University. I also have an MAT in Science Teaching - Secondary Physics from WGU. During my time working on a PhD in Chemistry I realized that teaching was my passion and I am grateful that I made the decision to become a high school science teacher.  I love working with teenagers and sharing my love of chemistry and physics with them!
