Shaping the character, caliber and future of every child.
A Life Passion to Teach
Thank you so much for stopping by A Place 4 Teachers. I am Diane and I have been teaching for 27 years. I am in my second career or year 3 in Missouri. I love Springfield, Missouri and the phenominal educaitonal system I am blessed to be a part of. Everyday in the classroom is a new reward! Children require relationship, rapport, and respect in the classroom. When the 3 R's are in place it is amazing the learning magic that unfolds for every children no matter their learning potential. That is my philosophy and I believe it with all my heart; every child has the potential to learn! It is up to us as teachers to venture into their learning style, supply the stimulation and inspiration, and allow the magic to unfold regardless of the effort it takes. It's not a job, it's a life passion for me.
My husband of 27 years is a retired teacher who spends his days substituting and helping our son on his farm. We have 5 beautiful children Matthew, Jessyka, Mary Jean, Lenora, and Jose. The first three are already college graduates and Lenora is a junior in college this year. We are looking forward to her graduation in about a year. Our youngest JOse just graduatted high school and will make us proud in whatever he persues. We are also blessed with three precious grandchildren Aubreyannah Sue, Alexandreyah Caroline and Wyatt Alan. I can hardly believe how fast life is moving.
I absolutely love nonfat vanilla lattes and I make one everyday. Thanks to my dad who gifted me with his Breville Espresso machine I can enjoy coffee on the road to school or out and about prospecting for gems and gold or enjoying photography.
