Welcome to 5th Grade! We are going to have a great year learning and having fun! We are lucky to have such a great team in 5th Grade, and all the teachers are wonderful! I am married to Todd Lippe, and we have 2 girls, Kendall and Kaley. Kendall is a competitive gymnast and Kaley is a competitive dancer. Todd and I both enjoy working out and being active. I am very active in my CrossFit program, and help out with the Kids Fit program too!
I am a Tampa, Florida native, and I have been living in Georgia for the past 6 years. I have been in education for 16.5 years including elementary and middle school. I taught 9 years in Tampa and was also an Assistant Principal at the middle school level for 4.5 years. I am now going on my 3rd year teaching 5th grade at Midway!
I have my Elementary Education, and Masters In Educational Leadership, K-12, from the University of South Florida. GO BULLS! In addition, I obtained my ESOL Endorsement while teaching in Florida.
I love children and teaching is my true passion. Where else can you work and learn something new every day, laugh, and make a difference? Well, I know the answer, at SCHOOL, BE A TEACHER!!
