Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Kristi DiBene and I am really looking forward to having your child in my kindergarten class this year. I would like to share a little bit about myself!
I am from the Midwest, Omaha, Nebraska. I graduated from Central Missouri State University in 2001 with my Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice and a minor in Psychology. After graduation, I lived and worked in Kansas City and then St. Louis. This is where I met my husband and we made the move to Florida. I have two boys, Vito and Gino, who have been at Sallie Jones Elementary. I also have two older step-children, Anthony and Samantha. I am certified in Elementary Education K-3 and this will be my 5th year teaching at Sallie Jones Elementary.
My mission statement is to make a difference in students' lives each day through fun learning experiences to develop their educational foundation. My classroom will be a positive and exciting learning environment so that children are academically engaged and feel safe and cared for.
