Mrs. Andrea Hipsky
My name is Andrea Hipsky and I am part of the 1st Grade Team at Matapeake Elementary School. I believe in maintaining a supportive and fun learning environment to foster the best possible growth in each and every one of my students as they progess through my classroom. I have been teaching for 11 years as of this year and look forward to continuing to educate students for many more years to come. I received my Bachelors Degree from Salisbury University and my Masters Degree from University of Phoenix. Queen Anne's County, while being the second county I have worked in since college (Talbot being the first) has been my home for the majority of my teaching career and I have enjoyed watching it change and grow as time has progressed.
I believe that each and every student deserves a voice in the classroom and a chance to receive the best education which I can possibly provide. To accomplish this I strongly encourage classroom participation and consistently work on individual or small group lesson plans whcih cater to the needs of the various edcuation levels in my room. While I run a well organized and efficient room, I also appreciate the little personalities that I get to see growing through interactions between each other and the learning environment as well. I am a strong beliver that education is a calling and not a mear "job" and do my best to exemplify that belief through the quality of my work and during my interactinos with my students.
My Hobbies Include:
- Family Time
- Reading (or listening to) good books
- Great Meals
- History in its many forms (books, movies, visiting battlefields, etc.)
