MEET Mrs. Gilpin

  • I love green!
  • I am left-handed.
  • I am from Canada.

  • I play the piano and am learning to play the ukelele.

This is my fourth year as a kindergarten teacher here at Meadowlark. I am thrilled to be a teacher and absolutely love what I do!

For many years I was a stay-at-home Mom to my four amazing children (Julia 17, Tyler 14, Ethan 13, and Jacob 10), returning to school and work once they all started school themselves. I graduated with top honors December 2013 from MSU with a Bachelors of Science in Education and a Teaching Reading Minor. Go Bobcats!

Committed to lifelong learning, I look forward to pursuing a masters degree in the future. I am passionate about literacy and early childhood education that includes music and movement!

Some of my favorite hobbies are to bike, hike and camp with my family. Last summer I tried zip lining for my first time. I was pretty scared and it was hard to try something new, but I did it! I love to garden, eat good food and especially enjoy READING!

Take a peek at our classroom!
