Mrs. Gipson or Mrs. G: 

Sixth grade is my absolute FAVORITE to teach!  I have been teaching since 1997 with my first year at Rich Pond in 1999.  I taught in the primary grades for seven years before switching to sixth grade.  I have been teaching 6th grade (and sometimes 5th as well) since 2004.  I earned my bachelor's degree from WKU in December of 1996.  In December of 2003 I earned my master's degree from WKU in Reading/Literacy.  I have been married since 2000 and have 2 sons, Scott and Wade. We have a mutt that we rescued from the Warren County Animal shelter, Pepper, who was the only girl in the family besides me until we got our 3rd guinea pig.  Our first 2 piggies were males & were given to each of the boys.  Spots and Bert were well loved, but passed away.  I got a guinea pig, Brownie, for our classroom through a Pets in the Classroom grant several years ago.  She only visited our home on holidays, so I didn't count her in the mix.  Jasper, another guinea pig, joined our family when a student could no longer keep her.  She became Pepper's pet!  In fact, when any of the piggies have come to our home to stay for a bit, Pepper lets us know if they need anything.  She won't even go out for her morning potty break until we've taken care of the pig!  Guinea pigs don't live for very long, so we have now had 4 of them in our home on a regular basis.  Baby Snowflake is the latest addition to the family/classroom.  She, too, is a rescue animal and has been our classroom pet for 6 years.  She is approximately 6 years old as of February of 2022.  She'll join us soon.  


I absolutely LOVE reading & hope that I can instill that love of reading with my students as well.  I will work hard all year to help your child be the best they can be to use their reading skills in their every day lives!



      I truly believe that there is a purpose for everything.  I have given the students a challenge to always make sure they understand the purpose for work in our class.  Is it for developing a particular skill, preparing for the next unit, preparing for the future (next year, middle school, high school, college), developing good habits, exploring new ways to take notes, or finding the best way to study?  Whatever the purpose, I try to avoid "busy work".  Homework is never a punishment--if you don't get something the first time, I try my best to give you opportunities to practice the skill again and retry.  I do not always give a "retake" approach to tests, so be diligent, work hard, ask questions (that pertain to the subject at hand), and give it your best effort  the first time through.

Our school mission statement is: Learning, Leading, and Succeeding

Check the Google Classroom pages for notes, more info, and so on.  Parents can request "guardian access" from those pages to see what your children have been doing, but cannot see the blogs from other students.
