Mrs. Jipson - First Grade

Grade Level: First Grade 
Room: 20

About the teacher: I have been teaching for 33 years. I have had the pleasure of working with many different students and their families. I have enjoyed watching student’s grow and develop. It always surprises and humbles me when I get an email from former students. I have also had the pleasure of teaching many siblings as well as the children of former students. Yes I have been at Akers that long!

I am a grandmother of 3 and I enjoy spending as much time as I can with my family. I love going beach, cooking, a good cup of coffee and a book to read. I am a collector of books, stories and fond memories of children.

Academics: Student learning is of the utmost importance. Student learning is a team effort. Parents, student and teacher.  

Homework: Students should have about 20 minutes of homework a night. Ten of the 20 minutes should be spent on reading. Distar reading homework will be sent home nightly according to the individual student levels and should be counted as part of their 10 minutes of reading. I want students to run and play I do not want the entire night spent doing homework. 

Questions: Please contact me Monday – Friday between 7:30 - 4:00 at 998-5707 ext. 2320
