About Diane


Bio

I choose to be a social studies/history teacher as my second career after being approached to both coordinate and teach the English as a Second Language (ESL) course for Mon Nuevous, an exchange program. Students today live in a global society and need to effectively communicate on that level. With that in mind my present position, implementing the Proficiency Based Graduation Requirement (PBGR) at Juanita Sanchez High School, has an international theme. It is extremely gratifying to share...

I choose to be a social studies/history teacher as my second career after being approached to both coordinate and teach the English as a Second Language (ESL) course for Mon Nuevous, an exchange program. Students today live in a global society and need to effectively communicate on that level. With that in mind my present position, implementing the Proficiency Based Graduation Requirement (PBGR) at Juanita Sanchez High School, has an international theme. It is extremely gratifying to share this process with my students and to see them transform from teacher led to a student centered learning.

I am also fortunate to teach in a subject area that lends itself to collaboration with colleagues for the purpose of increasing literacy and math skills. Working with the English Language Arts department, we have been able to present our students with a cohesive set of tools to improve their comprehensive reading strategies in narrative, expository, technical and persuasive texts. The social sciences use various charts, equations and graphs to aid our students in increasing their math skills. Being able to compare and analyze data and then formulating an opinion is incorporated in all my units.

My certification in social studies ranges from 5th grade until 12th grade. Seeing that my students were in need of more personalized instruction I implemented an after school credit recovery program. Students benefited from the one on one guidance along with the small class setting. I have also been hired by Rhode Island Crusaders to tutor students in both World and United States History. I look forward to extending my tutoring to all those students in need.
