I have truly been blessed as a person and an educator. I give all praise to God, His grace and mercy have blessed me! Writing and publishing Mr. Shipman's Kindergarten Chronicles has indeed been a dream come true. I want to thank everyone who has supported me through this journey. Special thanks goes to my wife, who is the love of my life; my mother, who taught me never to give up; my father, who told me there is always room for improvement; my sister, who is always looking out for her little brother; my children for being who they are and growing into your own greatness. Team Shipman is possible because of you. I also give thanks to my students: from kindergarten, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, 5th grade, and middle school students! You have shown what great teaching and learning can do. Keep on Finding Out How Great You Can Be!
