About Me

     Hello and welcome to my blog!  My name is Dianne and I have been teaching for 25 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 20 years now - Wow!
   Besides teaching, I have many other loves.  First is my husband.  We've been happily married for 25 years.  He is my friend and my life.  We have three beautiful children, two girls and a boy that range in age from 20 to 24.  Two are out of college, one is married and my youngest is a junior in college.  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 shih-toodle 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!


  1. Dianne-

    I met you last January at the Technology Conference in NH… we had lunch together one day. My name is Emma and I teach first in VT! I just saw you had a blogger meet up! I would love to participate next time! Fun to see you on here! Hope your year is going well!


    1. Hi Emma!
      I remember you! I wish I had remembered you for the meet up though. :( I'm thinking about hosting the next one, maybe this summer. I haven't totally made up my mind yet because my daughter is getting married in August (yikes!) but I will definitely let you know if I do or if I hear of another one. Hope all is going well. Take care!
