Welcome to Mrs. Tarpo's Resource Page!
Hello! My name is Stephanie Tarpo, and this is my fifteenth year teaching for Michigan City Area Schools. This is my 1st year teaching special education! I taught 2nd grade for 6 years and Kindergarten for 8 years. I am excited about working with grades K-3 in the resource room. I have enjoyed teaching both at Lake Hills and at Marsh Elementary. I graduated from Michigan City High School and earned my Bachelor of Arts Degree from Valparaiso University. I received my teaching license through Indiana Wesleyan University's Transition to Teaching program. I am thrilled to be back at my alma mater, Valparaiso University, taking graduate level classes this year to help me with the transition to teaching Special Education. I've wanted to be a teacher from the time I was a child and love working with primary students. My husband, Brian, and I have an 8-year-old daughter, Allie. When I am not teaching, I enjoy reading, watching movies, and hanging out with my family.
