Miss Cathy Carpenter
This is my 21st year teaching high school and my 15th 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 am currently pursuing a Master's degree in science teaching in physics. 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!
