Gretchen Ripple, M.S.

Professional educator since 1996.


Why I love teaching PLS 3rd Learning classes:

As Albert Einstein once said, "It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.” When you complete a PLS 3rd Learning class, you go back to the classroom refreshed and armed with new strategies. I love that feeling, and I love sharing that excitement with others.


About Me

When I’m not in the classroom teaching, I love to travel, experience new cultures, and meet new people. Having lived in England, Germany, and South Korea, my passion for traveling is strong.
