The highly regarded reputation of Gladwyne Montessori School was Diane's primary reason for wanting to be part of its faculty. In 1978, she observed the school for a morning and knew it was a special and wonderful community of parents, children, and teachers. Even after so many years of teaching, she continues to love coming to school everyday! Diane loves spending time with her family, and also enjoys gardening, reading, and staying fit through swimming, rowing, cross country skiing and snowshoeing.
