Mrs. Kelly Canipe


 Welcome to 3rd grade!  I am excited to be your teacher this year!


This is my third year as a teacher at Childers Elementary, and I have worked here before as a teacher assistant. Prior to teaching at Childers, I was an Exceptional Children's Teacher at Lincolnton Middle School. I taught resource and inclusion math classes for 6th and 7th grade. 


I am married to my husband Robert, and I have a daughter and stepson who both graduated from Lincolnton High School in 2019.  I enjoy reading, music of all kinds, and traveling.
