Mrs. Sipple 2021-2022

I am entering my 28th year teaching in Penn Trafford, all but 1 year here at Trafford Elementary.  I taught 18 years in first grade, 1 year in fifth grade, and am entering my 9th year in third grade. Both my B.S. in Business and Masters in Education are from the University of Pittsburgh.  When I am not in school or working on schoolwork at home, I keep busy with my husband and four kids.  My son and daughters range in age from 13-21 and are very involved with sports.  You can always find us at a ball field, pool, or dance studio! I love all kinds of sports, reading, and taking care of my two cats and dog.
 
I am excited for another year of seeing the students grow educationally, physically, mentally, socially..... We are in for a great year!
 
Please never hesitate to contact me through my email or the Homework Book.
 
Have a great day!
 
Mrs. Sipple
