Mrs. Joanna G. DiPeppe, NBCT

My name is Joanna DiPeppe. I am a National Board Certified Teacher who was hired by Aiken County this summer after 4 years of teaching in Maryland and 20 years of teaching at Satellite High School, in Brevard County, Florida. While in Florida, I taught AP English Language and Composition primarily to 11th graders (from the fall of 2000 to the spring of 2021). Each year, my program surpassed district, state, and global results, and was highly respected by the community. In addition to AP English, I also taught English II, English III, and a course called Creative Communications, in which all grade levels were represented. No matter which course I taught, I dedicated myself fully to my students and their families. Now, it is time to bring my experience and passion to the students of South Aiken High School.

On a more personal level, I am married to another new teacher to South Aiken, Jason DiPeppe. He and I have taught side-by-side since our internships in 1995-1996, so we make a great team. Additionally, we have one son, named Dominic, who is a freshman at the University of Florida, and we are so proud of him. Finally, we have a dog, named Lily, and a cat, named Bella. As we transition from beach life to barn life, we hope to add some larger babies as well. :)

To close, I am excited to be a part of the South Aiken family, and I hope to serve each of you to the best of my ability. Thank you in advance for your support as I begin this new journey.
