Hello! My name is Pennie Shipley. My husband, Lyle, is the minister at the Coalgate United Methodist Church. We have three children. Levi is our son. Our daughter, Mindy, her husband Dusty and soon-to-be born daughter, Raylie Dawn. Brittany is our youngest daughter, her husband Sean and our grandson, Liam. We are busy and blessed!
I grew up on a farm in Kansas. I attended and graduated from Minneapolis High School. Following high school, I went to college at Cloud County Community College, Kansas State University and finished at Northwestern Oklahoma State University in Alva, Oklahoma. I received my Bachelor's of Science in Elementary Education with an endorsement in Early Childhood. My passion has always been to teach and work with children, so I feel incredibly blessed to be doing what I love!
This is my fifth year to teach third grade at E. E. Emerson Elementary. Third grade is the BEST! I love my team of grade-level teachers and the opportunity to work not only at school, but in the community and church as well.
In my free time, I enjoy following the football team, reading, spending time with family and traveling.
