Mrs. Chelsey Piper

This is my 8th year at Newville Elementary in 5th grade! I have loved every second of it! As an alumnus, I have been part of the Big Spring family for many more years, and now I also get to raise my children as bulldogs! Grayson is 8 and heading into 3rd grade, Briella is 5 and will be a big kindergartner this year, and my youngest Haylee is almost 2! My husband, Garret and I are high school sweethearts, so we both have a love for the Big Spring community. My family blesses me everyday! I enjoy spending my free time with them, but I also love playing volleyball in an all women's league, cheering on The Pittsburgh Steelers, and cooking.

This year, I will be your child's reading and social studies teacher! I am excited to get to know your child and help them develop a love for reading! We will read several different novels together that all do a fantastic job telling about our country's history (WW2, Japanese Internment Camps, Holocaust, and Civil Rights). Supplemental reading texts such as articles, poetry, and other literature will be utilized throughout our units. 

Looking forward to a great year by building relationships and learning A LOT!
