My name is Tammy Shipley and I am looking very forward to working with you and your child this year!  Please allow me to tell you a little about myself. 

 I grew up in the Hermitage area and graduated from DuPont High School.  I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.  Upon graduation I moved to Marietta, Georgia where I taught Kindergarten for seven years.  While in Marietta, I received my Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education.  I returned to Nashville in 1996 and taught 1st and 2nd grade for five years.  During this time I met and married my husband, Rich. 

I took a seven year hiatus from teaching to stay home with our two children.  Our son, Carson, is in the 7th grade at Mt. Juliet Middle School and our daughter, Hannah, is in the 5th grade at Mt. Juliet Elementary. 

Some of my hobbies include reading, cooking and spending time with family and friends.  I am looking forward to a wonderful 2013 - 2014 school year!
