Ms. Diane has been with Destiny since Feb 2017. Originally from Austin, Texas, Diane relocated to Virginia to attend high school and continue her education at Radford University where she studied early childhood education. While in school, Diane worked as a lead preschool teacher and as an assistant director for a small day care in Blacksburg. Her experience also includes work as an aid in group therapy sessions with children ages 7-17 diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, ADHD, or social skills challenges. Including her time at DSOA, Diane has spent the last 11 years teaching kindergarten and preschool! Diane also loves volunteering with the 2- and 3-year-olds at her church’s children’s ministry. Diane has a vast array of experience and a passion for working with children of all ages and abilities. Her greatest reward is watching children grow emotionally, socially, spiritually, and academically. When not at work, Diane can be found spending time with family or going on her next outdoor adventure, kayaking, backpacking, or hiking with her fur baby!
