Welcome to my 5th grade class. My name is Kelly Lippard. I am a native of Charlotte, NC and a product of CMS. I earned both my Bachelor's and Master's Degrees from East Carolina University. I also received my AIG certification from Queen's University. I have been teaching for 21 years. My first 3 years were in Eastern North Carolina. This will be my 19th year teaching in CMS. I have taught Kindergarten, 3rd, 4th and 5th grade. I currently live in Mooresville with my husband Scotty and our dog Nelson. I love spending time on the lake and going to the beach. I will be teaching Math and Science this year. I feel it is important to have strong parent participation. I encourage you to contact me with any questions or concerns during the year. I believe it is important for us to work together as a team to help your child achieve a positive learning experience.
