Meet Our Master Teacher
Heather Lipsey


h lipseyMy name is Heather Lipsey and I am excited to have the opportunity to work at Pineville Elementary School as their Master Teacher. I have been a teacher in Rapides Parish for 14 years and during these years have been provided many opportunities to grow in my craft as an educator.
In 2004, I began my teaching career at Carter C. Raymond, where I worked for the next 13 years. Last year, I was honored to be appointed as Master Teacher at North Bayou Rapides Elementary. During the last year, I worked to assist teachers in strengthening their instructional practices in order to increase student achievement.
As Master Teacher at Pineville Elementary, it is my goal to increase student achievement for every child by providing continued support to teachers. This support will be provided through collaborative efforts regarding best instructional practices and instructional strategies to meet the needs of all students. I am excited to be a part of the instructional team at Pineville Elementary, and look forward to helping build a school culture which will cultivate life-long learners while building relationships with all stakeholders.
