Congratulations on a well deserved award. We know incoming Kindergartners are always the great unknown. You have always been a wonderful first step into Elementary School for those youngest of learners. Appropriate hands on learning with lots of guidance and love for those new little ones learning the ropes. Always kind and generous, the best first teacher children canpossibly encounter.
Congratulations Katie. Way to go.

She was my daughter's kindergarten teacher. She is the best.
Dr. Gipperich is a true reflection of love. She is a model educator who communicates effectively with parents and ignite a passion for students to come in ready to learn. Even with decades of experience teaching, she’s still open to learning new concepts and strategies. I have four children and she’s taught one but has a relationship with all. This is a well-deserved nomination for an educator who continues saturate the community with her smile and genuine drive to excel students.
