Title: Art Educator (Retired)
Company: Grass Lake School
Location: Chelsea, Michigan, United States
Sheryl Lipiec, Retired Art Educator at the Grass Lake School, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in art education.
Desiring to become a teacher from a formative age, Ms. Lipiec felt a natural calling to art, having been a talented and prolific artist since she was a child. Earning a Bachelor of Science in art education from Western Michigan University in 1967, she subsequently returned to academia decades later, where she completed postgraduate studies at Eastern Michigan University and Wayne State University in the 1990s. A certified kindergarten through 12th grade art teacher in the state of Michigan, she commenced her career as a seventh through ninth grade art teacher at Kelly Junior High School in 1967, holding this role for eight years. Thereafter, she served San Francisco Unified Schools as a ninth through 12th grade art teacher, Chelsea Community Education as a preschool teacher and Saturday program art teacher, and Chelsea School District as a substitute teacher for kindergarten through fifth grade.
Most recently, Ms. Lipiec has served as an elementary art teacher at the Grass Lake Schools from 2000 until her retirement in 2010, having formerly been a kindergarten through fifth grade teacher at Lincoln Consolidated Schools from 1994 to 2000. Equally passionate about her community, she has been a member of the Parent Teacher Organization at Lincoln Schools since 2000, a helping parent for Chelsea Schools from 1989 to 1990, and a parent helper for the Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts of America from 1986 to 1998. Likewise, she was formerly a school guide and interpreter for the Waterloo Farm Museum from 1994 to 1998.
A member of the Michigan Education Association and Michigan Art Education Association, Ms. Lipiec was recognized as a scholarship grantee of Western Michigan University in 1967. However, the highlight of her career was raising two sons who are creative in their own rights, one of which is an engineer and the other a paramedic and firefighter. She has been highlighted in the 26th and 27th editions of Who’s Who of American Women.
