Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! I am Mrs. Ripley and have been teaching for 28 years, 17 of which have been at Silver Sage Elementary. In the midst of my two separate school-based teaching experiences, I stayed home for 15 years to raise my first son and was involved in developing home school cooperatives in the area. I love teaching, especially fifth graders, but have taught grades one through eight over my years in education. I grew up in Michigan, Indiana, and Pennsylvania; received my Bachelor of Science degree in Education from Bob Jones University in Greenville, South Carolina in 1975; and moved to Idaho to take my first teaching position in Twin Falls. I am married and have one son still at home who is a junior at Borah High School.
