My name is James Shipp and I am the Gifted and Talented facilitator for Riverview Elementary. Also, I will be teaching third, fourth, and fifth grade advanced math as well as a fifth grade engineering class. My wife Alicia and I are both originally from Durango and have two daughters, Stella who is 5 and Kendall who is 3. We are excited to be raising our daughters back in our home town as we love this community and the people in it. I have taught kindergarten, third, fourth, and fifth grade and am very excited for the opportunity to work with your kids. I appreciate open communication with families and students and would like to encourage families to be involved in their students education. Please feel free to contact me at any time with any questions throughout the year, I am an advocate for you and your kids.
I am very excited for this upcoming year and working with you and your child. Again, I am open to feedback and welcome any and all suggestions throughout the year. I want the best for your children and want them to enjoy their elementary experience while at Riverview.
