About Diane

I have recently retired from teaching full time after many years. I've taught exceptional and regular education students in hospitals, special public school settings and private and public schools in New York, Kansas and Palm Beach County. I received my Bachelor Degree in Elementary Education in New York, my Masters Degree in Instructional Services (Learning Disabilities) in Kansas and my National Board Certification as Exceptional Needs Specialist, Early Childhood-Young Adult in Florida. My love of teaching all children, in addition to raising my own two children, has been the focus of my life. I have taught autistic children in self-contained classes for a total of about 16 years. I've tutored in a private school in P.B.County for many years and administered psycho-educational testing at a center in P.B. County until I went back to full time teaching.
