• Welcome to Mrs. Tarpo's Second Grade Class!

  • Hello!  My name is Stephanie Tarpo, and this is my fourteenth year teaching for Michigan City Area Schools.  This is my 6th year teaching 2nd grade.  Previously I taught Kindergarten for 8 years.  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'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 a 7-year-old daughter, Allie.  When I am not teaching, I enjoy reading, watching movies, and hanging out with my family.
