Mr. Thiel is a graduate from the University of Georgia with a business degree and emphasis in Marketing. Upon graduating, he spent a few years in the corporate world but transitioned into teaching about five years ago.

He recently completed his Master of Arts in Teaching at Georgia State University with an emphasis in both math and science at the middle grades level. 

When not enjoying life in the classroom, Mr. Thiel is most likely watching Green Bay Packers football, traveling, hiking, reading a good book, or rewatching The Last Dance on Netflix. He also likes coffee a lot, too.
