• Hello!  Welcome to 5th Grade.  My name is Stephany Dingman. I was born in Yokosuka, Japan and raised on a Naval Base located in the Mojave Desert in California.  I live in Monticello Minnesota with my husband and our family.  Prior to teaching I workd as a paraprofressional and behavior interventionist for 7 years, I transitioned into Reading Corps as a Literacy tutor after that.  I received my BA in Interdisciplinary Studies K-8 from Western Govenors University and am currently working on my Masters in Elementary Mathematics, also at WGU.  I taught Kindergarten in St. Paul at Quantum STEAM Academy and 3rd Grade in Eagan.  

    I have a passion for learning and curiosities and bringing that passion to my students.  I am so excited to be here at Discovery Elementary and District 742!
