Thank you for visiting my webpage. My name is Dianna Carpenter. This is my third year teaching 1st grade at Gardner STEM school. I've taught Kindergarten for 5 years here at Gardner. Prior to that, I worked with young children at a preschool for about 4 years and I also worked at a Children's Home. My family consists of my wonderful husband Tim and my fantastic sons Andrew and Will, ages 17 and 15. I absolutely love teaching, and can't see myself doing anything else. Preparing the next generation for a successful life is certainly a privilege for me.
