Early Childhood


Hi. I am Ms. Diane. I grew up on a farm in southern Minnesota. I have 4 brothers and 3 sisters! I still love getting together with my big family. We laugh a lot! Growing up, I wanted to be a teacher and a mom, and I am so lucky that I get to be both!

I have been married to my husband, Joe, for 25 years. We have 3 children. Christof is a sophomore at Iowa State, Eva is a high school senior doing PSEO at Normandale, and Ryan is a freshman at NPHS. We live in the country on 4 acres, where we enjoy our kitties, lambs, and chickens. We like to play board games and yard games, watch movies, and spend time with our many relatives. I also love to read, walk, and work in my yard and flower gardens.

I have taught everything from preschool to seventh grade, and I have loved all of it! I am passionate about preschool because of how especially important it is to nurture young children socially and emotionally and teach them through play (and because preschoolers are lovable and funny!). This is my fourth year teaching preschool at Eagle View, and I absolutely LOVE it there!
