Welcome to Mr. Seipp's Third Grade Class.

The first day of school is August 4th. I'm anxious to see all of of my new students, bright and early Monday morning.
    For the first several weeks of school our theme will be U.S. geography.
    I enjoy reading to my students and will do so for thirty minutes or more every day. The first novel I will read to the class will be "Sideways Stories From Wayside School".

I was born in New York state but lived there only until the ripe old age of two. My parents moved us to Parkville, Missouri. Parkville was in every way Mayberry North Carolina. It was a small town where everyone knew everyone else. We had a sheriff whose only job was rounding up truants and stray dogs. The doctor made house calls and the grocery store charged a nickel for a coke. When you were done you could take back the bottle for 2 cent deposit and use the two cents to buy a pack of gum with baseball cards.My dad worked as a music professor and choir director at Park College. I attended pre-school through second grade at Graden Elementary School.
    We moved from Parkville to Bloomington, Indiana where I attended third and fourth grade. In the middle of July 1960, my parents in what could only be termed blatant child abuse, moved us from the temperate heartland of America to Tempe. I finished school in Tempe, including college.
    After college, I worked for a year at the Sonora Desert Museum in Tucson. My first teaching job was in Cibecue. I worked there for three years and then for sixteen years at different schools on the Navajo Reservation. I have worked for the past four years at Concho School and plan to finish my career here.
