In her own words . . .

“Teaching and learning is an ongoing process. As a new PreK teacher, I have learned to focus on the big picture and work from there. I am a strong believer that children learn by doing. I also believe that it is very important to make learners independent and accountable for their learning.”

In the words of others . . .

“Diana embodies the District’s Core Values. She puts the needs of her students first, she builds on the strengths of her co-workers and students, she is committed to her students and enjoys her days with them, she fosters limitless curiosity in her classroom, and Diana is guided by her character, ethics, and integrity.” 
 Jessica Lopez, Buffalo Creek Elementary Health Fitness Instructor

“She is strong in laying a solid foundation which the students can build upon in the upper grades. She has a talent for making her lessons fun yet rigorous, having structure and being nurturing, leading and allowing children to lead. She is the all-around example of a positive balanced teacher.”
