Hello!  My name is Cris Tipple and I am currently in my 16th year of teaching high school vocal music.  Where did the time go? At Western Dubuque, I direct the varsity show choir, 5th Avenue as well as co-direct the Concert, Chamber, Men's, and Women's choirs at the high school with my amazing counterpart, Judy Waterman.  I also co-teach Guitar and Piano Methods and Music Theatre Productions.  I believe that our program here at WD is very well-rounded and truly has something to offer everyone.  
When I'm not hanging out with high school students, I love spending time with my two little boys and totally embrace being a "boy mom".  We spend lots of time outdoors and enjoy all nature.  My husband, sons, and I reside in Dubuque, but we are all Bobcats through and through! 
Mrs. Christine Tipple
