Ms. DiRupo - Middle School Health/Physical Education

Welcome to Middle School.  (Grades 5th - 8th Graders)
 
I am very excited to be teaching Middle School at Union Academy.  This is my first year at Union Academy, although I have been teaching for over 10 years in New Jersey.  I graduated from The University of South Carolina (Go Gamecocks)! with a BA in Physical Education.  I did play softball at The University of South Carolina, which we advanced to the college world series.  After college I was blessed with the opportunity to go bowl professionally on the PWBA (Professional Women's Bowlers Tour).  I did that for 14 years and have accomplished 10 titles, which three of them being Masters.  I have two brothers and one sister that are all in New Jersey.  I have a puppy named Munchkin and she is my heart.
