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!
