“Mrs. Kipe-Thank you for all your time, your love, and your patience in teaching my daughter. I really appreciate it!"

Nichole Kevas


I'd like to recommend and refer you to Mrs. Kipe. She is a wonderful teacher! My son was a student of hers. He did great in her class. She is full of patience, concern, and cares about everyone. I loved her as a teacher. I wish every year he had a teacher as wonderful as her. Your child will only benefit and succeed from her teachings and knowledge. I just call her a TRUE PARENT'S BLESSING OF A TEACHER.

"Mrs. Tonya Kipe taught Michael. I know she helped him get better. My son now has dedication, enthusiasm, and a competitive drive thanks to Tonya Kipe. This initiative is what we need. The community needs choice for the future and the future are our kids.

Mrs. Kipe was my daughters second grade teacher and honestly a true blessing. She encouraged my daughter to do her best even when she was struggling with her reading and writing, she took time out of her personal life to stay after school and tutor our kids without asking the parents for a penny! She helped my child thrive and do her very best, by the time she ended her year with her, my daughter had reached her highest levels! She treats her students like her own, she cares for them and loves them deeply. She leaves a mark not only on her students heart but on us parents too! She really pushed my child to do her best, gave her the confidence she needed to believe in her and the respect a child deserves to learn at her own pace, getting to know her students is a major part and we are truly grateful for all she has done for our girl. Mrs. Kipe will forever be a part of our lives and any achievement our child does, she played a big important roll in my child’s life and till today 2 years later she celebrates each accomplishment she does. Thank you Mrs. Kipe for all your hard work, kindness and everything you have provided to all your students!
