Degrees and Certifications:
Hello. My name is Michaele Hippauf and I am the Reading Specialist at Western Salisbury Elementary School.
My role includes working with both children and teachers to support the reading process. I teach and manage a number of reading programs that assist children from kindergarten through fifth grade. I also work collaboratively with teachers and staff to ensure high quality literacy instruction.
Prior to coming to WSE, I worked in the Allentown School District where I taught several grade levels; kindergarten, fourth, and fifth grade. In addition, I was a reading teacher who supported fourth and fifth grade children who needed additional reading support.
My credentials include a bachelors degree in Business Administration from Del Val College, and my teaching certification in Elementary Education, through Cedar Crest College. I earned a Master's Degree in Reading along with my Reading Specialist Certification at East Stroudsburg University. In 2012 I acquired my ESL(English as a second language) certification from Cedar Crest College.
