    Hello, Tigers!!  My name is Marsha Lippe and I am the PK-2 counselor at DSE.  This is my 23rd year in education.  I earned my BA from The University of the Incarnate Word and my MA in Counseling & Guidance from Texas A&M. The first 11 years I was a PreK and Kinder teacher and the last 11 years as a school counselor.  This is my first year at DSISD and I can barely contain my excitement to be a Tiger!!

    I have one beautiful daughter and an exquisite granddaughter that calls me "Mimzie". I also have a 13-year-old dog named Scarlett.  I love to be outside, travel, hike, and be with my family.

    I look forward to meeting each of you and having a fantastic 2022-23 school year.  GO TIGERS!!!

    I am thrilled to be one of the school counselors at Dripping Springs Elementary. I have 24 years of experience in education, 14 of those years with Dripping Springs ISD. Within DSISD, I served as a third grade teacher for a total of 9 years at Walnut Springs Elementary before I joined Sycamore Springs to serve as a Special Education teacher for 5 years. I graduated from Southwest Texas State University with a Bachelor of Science and I completed my Masters Degree in Guidance and Counseling from San Angelo State University. 

    I live in Dripping Springs with my husband, John, and two sons. My oldest son, Kade, will be a sophomore at the University of Houston and my youngest son, Kyle, will be a sophomore at Dripping Springs High School. I enjoy spending my free time with my family, doing home projects, and working in the yard.  

    I love being a part of the Dripping Springs ISD family and I am excited to continue my career supporting students and families as a school counselor for DSE.

    I'm the new Mental Health Professional and very excited to be here. I studied Psychology at St. Edward's and received a Masters in Counseling from UTSA. I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor and love working in schools and helping students and their families.
    I have more than 15 years of working in mental health and for the past six years I have worked with school districts to develop and provide services to students. I can't wait to meet you and have the opportunity to support our children.  I'll be providing an extra layer of support for some of our students. 
    For fun, I enjoy jogging, hiking, camping and exploring state parks with my family. I hope to meet you soon and I'm looking forward to a wonderful year!
