Welcome Mr. Shippy to Lucy Franklin Elementary!

Principal ShippyHello, Lucy Franklin Leopards!

My name is Seth Shippy, and this will be my first year as principal at Lucy Franklin Elementary. I would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little about myself. I am a graduate of the Odessa School District, and received my bachelor’s degree from the University of Central Missouri. I also earned my specialist degree in administration through the University of Central Missouri’s Collaborative Principals Preparation Program. I have been lucky enough to spend my entire 15 year career working for the Blue Springs School District. I taught at James Walker Elementary for 6 years, and spent the next 5 years as an administrative intern or assistant principal at James Lewis Elementary, Lucy Franklin Elementary, and Thomas Ultican Elementary. I was then named building principal at John Nowlin Elementary in 2016 and have spent the last 4 years there. I am looking forward to starting this year as a Lucy Franklin Leopard and beginning my journey with the LFE family!

As your building principal, my goal is to maintain a safe, secure, and nurturing environment for students. I hope to help build life-long memories and relationships for students and staff. As a staff, we hope to create a learning environment where students thrive academically and develop the confidence they need to accomplish their dreams. Lucy Franklin is a student-centered building that values the input and partnership with all of our families. I believe that each of us play a valuable role in the education of our students, and it is through our collaboration that success happens!

Outside of school, I am a blessed, proud father of three wonderful children. My wife also works as a teacher in the Blue Springs School District. When I have free time, I spend it with our kids following all of their activities. Sports have always been a big part of my life. While at UCM, I competed in both baseball and wrestling. I am a fan of the Chiefs and Royals and enjoy watching them play. I also love the outdoors, and my two biggest hobbies are hunting and fishing.

It is an honor to be a part of the Blue Springs School District, and I count it a privilege to work with your children each day. Each school year brings new excitement and as we work through this year together, I can’t wait to see the growth and success to come!

It’s a great day to be a Leopard!
