    Diane taught high school English and world history for 15 years in Orange County, California. Through her teaching experiences, including working with at-risk students, she has gained much insight into the cultural underpinnings of our contemporary American culture.

    Studying social sciences, volunteering in the streets of Long Beach, teaching Bible studies, serving lunches for Vietnam veterans, and counseling at-risk youth in the California Youth Authority have highlighted for Diane the need for social change in America. Working in civil service at Vandenberg Air Force Base during the Vietnam War and serving as the wife of an Air Force officer also contribute a military perspective.

    Diane is former chair of the Republican Educators Caucus, focusing on improving educational opportunities for students across America. (Disclaimer: Diane speaks as an individual and not for any other entities.)

    Diane graduated from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo in 1970 with a B.A. degree in history, social sciences, and music. She added an M.A. from California State University, Long Beach in 1976 in secondary education. Further credentials at California State Universities, Long Beach and Fullerton include traffic and safety, administration, and she recently earned the CLAD credential for teaching English learners.
