My name is John DiPlacido and I am excited to be teaching at St. Dominic this year. I taught marine science at Dauphin Island sea lab for 10 years and spent the last 14 years teaching science in Hoover, Alabama. I graduated from the University of Alabama Huntsville in 1991 with a B.S. in biology/teacher certification, and from Oregon State with a science education master degree in 1995. I am looking forward to teaching in the Catholic school system, especially at my family’s home parish.
