Shelby Rippie

Welcome to 

Mrs. Rippie's First Grade
1st Grade 2019

Hi!  My name is Shelby Rippie.  I graduated in 2006 from Lipscomb Univeristy with a Bachelor of Science in Education.  I also received an ELL endorsement from Lipscomb in 2015.  I began my teaching career in Antioch, TN at Ezell Harding Christian School.  I made the move back home to Springfield in 2011 and have been teaching 1st Grade at Krisle ever since.  

I love my Krisle family!  Teaching reading is my favorite!  I am an aunt to four beautiful nieces.  I love to run, read, travel, and spend time with my husband, friends, and family.  I am also an avid sports fan and am very passionate about UT football and Atlanta Braves baseball.
