About Mrs. DiPernaWelcome to Room 19! My name is Mrs. DiPerna, and I am so excited to be your child's 2nd grade teacher thisyear! Before I had my own kids, I taught 2nd and 3rd grade in Virginia and Wisconsin. Then, for 10 years, I was a stay-at-home mom with Christopher (PSU Junior), Lauren (PSU Junior) andClaire (PSU Freshman). My husband and I are officially "empty nesters" this year!I'm now in my 12th year of teaching at Gray's Woods Elementary School. My husband, Mr. DiPerna, teaches in the School of Education at Penn State. Our family pet is our dog, Indy. She is a sweet black lab/golder retriever.
In my spare time, I love to watch my kids participate in their sports and activities, take Indy for long walks, cook new recipes, travel, and read a good book at the beach.
Here's a video of my Gray's Woods colleagues and me in the 2012 and 2013 Lip Sync shows.I look forward to being your child's teacher this year!
