About Ms. Ripley and Contact

At Butler Graduation in Spring 2017

It’s so nice to meet you! My name is Christina Ripley and I am an English teacher here at Fishers High School. This school year marks my 4th year as a classroom teacher, and my 3rd as a member of the Fishers High School team.

While I didn’t attend Fishers High School as a student, I grew up nearby (and my dad continues to practice orthodontics in Fishers). I graduated from Lawrence North High School in 2007, and studied Professional Writing at Purdue University. Boiler up! In 2011, I started working at Bradley and Montgomery, an ad agency in downtown Indianapolis, as a copywriter and creative assistant. I completed the coursework for my initial teaching licensure through Butler University, I earned my Masters in Effective Teaching and Leadership from Butler in Spring 2017 after completing a teacher research thesis focused on student identity and writing.

As you can see, my path to becoming an educator was far from a straight line. I consider myself a lifelong learner who is always looking for a new challenge and a new story to tell. I’ve seen firsthand how language and words have the power to change perceptions and shape our futures. As a teacher, I feel it is my job to create an environment where each student can find his or her unique voice, express special talents, celebrate diverse cultural heritage and use reading and writing as a means of self-discovery. I wish each student the best of luck this school year.

Don’t forget to be awesome!

– Ms. Ripley
