Welcome to Mrs. Tarpo's Second Grade Class!
Hello! My name is Stephanie Tarpo, and this is my thirteenth year teaching for Michigan City Area Schools. This is my 5th 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 6 year old daughter, Allie. When I am not teaching, I enjoy reading teaching blogs, watching movies, going to the Y, and hanging out with my family.
