Mrs. Kris Shipp
I am excited to have this opportunity to be your SEARCH Specialist at Hillside Elementary.
I have a Masters of Educational Administration EC-12 from Lamar University, Bachelor of Science degree from University of Texas at Tyler in EC-4 Interdisciplinary Studies, and an Associate of Applied Science in Child Development from Tarrant County College.
Since graduating with a specialization in both early childhood and elementary education I have worked in a variety of educational settings. I have developed many valuable skills while teaching diverse groups of students including both children with learning disabilities and gifted children. I am adept at individualizing the curriculum to meet each child's different needs and designing resourceful lesson plans which accommodate differing learning abilities and interests.
I enjoy being creative and utilizing new ideas and approaches to improve the learning environment for my students. I have incorporated a variety of hands on activities, fun manipulatives, and learning projects to inspire and motivate the students.
I am passionate about empowering elementary school children and helping them to develop their full potential. Part of this process includes close interaction with parents to encourage participation, and reinforce learning in the home while building the child's self-esteem and confidence.
I look forward to working with you and your children at Hillside Elementary. If you have any questions or concerns, please email me at Kris.Shipp@LCPS.org
