Hello My Name Is...

Sissi Shipley

I am so excited to be a Silver Lake Shooting Star! This will be my 14th year in the Teaching field. I taught in Irving ISD for 5 years and  4 ½ years at a private Montessori school for pre-K and Kindergartners. This will be my sixth year in GCISD and at Silver Lake Elementary and it really is THE place to be! 
I am passionate about teaching! I love to research new ways to be a more effective educator and new resources to use in the classroom. I love books and try to build a love for reading throughout the school year. 

My husband, Michael, & I have 2 children that both attend Silver Lake. Matthew is 13 years old and in 8th grade and our daughter, Emma, is 10 years old and in 5th Grade. We have two dogs, Bo and Dixie and we live in Flower Mound.

Michael and I just celebrated our 15 year anniversary. He is a Lieutenant in the Dallas Fire Department and graduated from ACU. I graduated from DBU with a Bachelors of Arts and Science in Psychology.

We are an active family and love to be outdoors, especially in the swimming pool! I love to read & attempt at crafty Pinterest projects. :)

I LOVE  Harry Potter, reading, all things DISNEY, Dr. Pepper, and bright, fun colors!

I am looking forward to this year & so excited to have your child in my class!
