• 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.
