Ms. MountHello! My name is Diane Mount. This is my second year at North Central, teaching in the freshman alternative program. I graduated from Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington in 2002 with a degree in Psychology. Since then, I returned to school for a teaching certificate and have an Elementary Education Teaching Certificate with a middle school math endorsement. I am working on my Masters in Elementary Education and plan to graduate this May.
Although I am originally from Seattle, Washington, I am getting used to the extreme temperatures, hot and cold, here in Indy. At home, I have a 90 pound, female, Alaskan Malamute. Her name is Anari. Isn't she cute???
Some interesting things about me:
I am training for the Indianapolis Mini-Marathon and will be running in the 13.1 mile race in May. This will be my 4th year running and my best overall time was 2 hours and 7 minutes in 2006. Does anyone want to run it with me?
I love to travel. My goal is to visit each continent, except for Antarctica. I have been all over Europe, thanks to my study abroad program during college, traveled to Thailand and Australia recently, and want to visit Brazil and South Africa in the near future.
I love to ski. This is a new hobby of mine. My favorite mountain so far is Whistler in Vancouver, BC.
Here are some student snapshots:
More coming soon....
