Mrs. Linda Dippolito

Hello Families! I am the 4th and 5th grade Resource Specialist at Ysabel Barnett Elementary and this is my 28th year of teaching. I received my Bachelor's degree at Cortland State Univeristy in Elementary Education and I received my Master's degree in Special Education at Syracuse University. My career started in Syracuse, NY as a high school special education teacher and then as a First and Second Grade teacher.  I began my career as a Resource Teacher in 1997. In 2000, my family and I moved to Temecula and I have been teaching in this fabulous district ever since. My husband and I raised our son and daughter in Temecula and they both graduated from Chaparral High School. Our son lives in Florida with his wife and two children and our daughter lives in Nashville. On my free time, my husband and I enjoy traveling to see our grandchildren and going to concerts. I love being a Resource Teacher and I get so much pleasure out of helping my students improve academically and socially!
