Diane has been involved in second language education for over thirty years as a French teacher and language coordinator in Richmond School District. She has served on the CASLT, BCATML and BCLCA, as secretary, vice-president and president, all with the focus on second language education.
Born in Vancouver, she has a BA in French, a teaching certificate, and a MA in second language education from UBC. Diane began her teaching career in Comox where she taught French 4-7, then moved to Abbotsford where she taught French 11-12, then finally settled in Richmond where she taught French 8-12 and has been ever since. Diane became the modern language coordinator in 1998, supporting language teachers from K-12 both in FI and other languages, and is presently the ESL coordinator. Over the years, French Immersion grew by over 1000 students in her district and she oversaw the opening two new FI schools.
Diane is especially proud of Richmond’s annual participation in Concours d’art oratoire which has become a community celebration of FI. She has been involved in CPF since 1998 and has one daughter who has graduated from FI and another attending a FI school in Richmond. Diane looks forward to connecting with parents across the province and working with the CPF BC & Yukon board.
