Dianna is a native Angelino who recently moved back to LA from the Bay Area. This will be her second year teaching at LCS. Outside of teaching she loves music more than anything. She would love to hear about your favorite songs and artists! She often enjoys hiking, camping, and all nature-related activities. She can be kind of a goof-ball, so any chance to see a comedy show or dress up in costumes you can bet she’ll be there. She also loves museums, photography, and almost everything about science. Finally, she is an animal lover who is dying to get a dog.

Why did you want to be a teacher/work in education?
I became a teacher because I love working with people, especially children. Beyond the basic necessities, education is the most important thing in a child’s life. A great education inspires, brings joy, and helps children grow into better citizens and better human beings. I love being a part of that process. There’s nothing more rewarding that helping a student work through challenges and achieve goals.

Over 10 years!
