Ms. Becca Thorpe
My name is Becca Thorpe. I hold an Educational Specialist Degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of West Georgia, a Master’s Degree from Piedmont College, and a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Georgia. Before joining the Dove Creek team, I spent 9 years teaching in the Clarke County School District. I have taught five different grade levels and served as team leader for both my Kindergarten and first grade teams. I have enjoyed working with so many different personalities, and I have certainly learned a lot about the importance of collaboration. I became a teacher because I enjoy children and find it very rewarding to make an impact on students, whether it is academically, emotionally, behaviorally, or otherwise. I also would not be fit for a desk job, as I cannot sit still and am constantly on the move.
Outside of teaching, I enjoy pretty much all outdoor activities. I am an avid mountain biker and runner. I love exploring new trails and going on group runs. Swimming was my first love. I used to be a swimmer and spent many summers coaching swim team at Summer Hill. I still spend part of my summers in the pool giving private swim lessons. I also enjoy traveling to national parks and visiting new places. I am an adventure seeker and encourage all of my students to enjoy life and dream big!
