Mrs. Jill Pippen

Parents and Students,

 My name is Jill Pippen and I am excited to be able to rejoin the Collettsville Community as principal of Collettsville School.  I attended Collettsville School as a student from ‘84-’93.  I was blessed to have had the great teachers and educational experiences this school is known for.

 I attended Appalachian State University where I received my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Elementary Education and a Graduate Certificate in School Leadership.  I also have my National Board Certification in Middle ChildhoodGeneralist.  I taught math and science at Happy Valley Elementary School for 15 years before becoming the Middle School Math Instructional Facilitator for Caldwell County Schools  for 3 years.  My time as an Assistant Principal was spent serving at West Caldwell High School.

 Collettsville School has a rich tradition of creating a family atmosphere focused on educating the whole child.  It is my goal to honor this tradition and the unique qualities that make a K-8 school such a special place to be a part of.  

 I want to thank the parents and community for your time, effort, and dedication to Collettsville School.  I look forward to a successful year partnering with you.  I encourage you to be involved and support our AMAZING students and staff members.
