About Me

Hello and welcome to my blog!  My name is Dianne and I have been teaching for 21 years.  My experience ranges from Resource to Self-Contained to DPT to First Grade and finally Second Grade.  When I landed in Second grade, I knew it was my favorite place.  Don't get me wrong, I've loved ALL of my jobs but not like this.  I've been in second for 16 years now - Wow!
   Besides teaching, I have many other loves.  First is my husband.  We've been happily married for 21 years.  He is my friend and my life.  We have three beautiful children, two girls and a boy that range in age from 16 to 20.  Two are in college and my youngest is a junior in highschool.  We are truly blessed by our children.  They have always made us proud and all three are very family-oriented (which, of course, I LOVE!).  We have two dogs - a shihtoodle named Moose and a dachsund mix named Ember.  Ember is completely deaf and our youngest daughter convinced us to rescue her.  It has been an amazing experience for all of us.
     I have many hobbies as well.  Reading is my all-time, absolute favorite thing to do.  Blogging is running a close second these days...  I also enjoy scrapbooking, painting and walking.  That's my life in a nutshell.  Talk to you soon!
