3rd Grade Gifted Teacher

My Bio

Hello! My name is Monica Dippre.  I am married with 5 adopted children and I am excited to begin my third year at STCS as the 3rd grade gifted teacher . I have many years of teaching experience and then spent time at home with my kids, who also attend STCS. Being a mom has positively shaped my perspective as a teacher. I am grateful to be able to spend my days getting to know the students in my class as well as their families. I chose to be a part of the San Tan community because of their emphasis on building relationships and creating a child-centered atmosphere.
