About Diana


Bio

I've worked with special education, gifted, and ESL students. I've taught test prep, social studies/literacy, preschool and 3rd grade as a long-term substitute teacher. I've also tutored college students as well as a student that was suspended from school. I take playback theater classes and often teach improvisational acting skills to my students. I've been in 7 films and even a Blondie music video. I am also a writer, and I've written poems, short stories, digital stories, commercials,...

I've worked with special education, gifted, and ESL students. I've taught test prep, social studies/literacy, preschool and 3rd grade as a long-term substitute teacher. I've also tutored college students as well as a student that was suspended from school. I take playback theater classes and often teach improvisational acting skills to my students. I've been in 7 films and even a Blondie music video. I am also a writer, and I've written poems, short stories, digital stories, commercials, monologues, and scripts.

I make learning fun and interesting. I believe children sometimes need someone to motivate them to learn by bringing out their talents and incorporating them into creative lessons.
