Hello! My name is Diane Gibbs and I teach Spanish at Bennett Elementary. This is my twelfth year at Bennett, but I have six years of previous experience. I have enjoyed teaching at the high school and middle school levels in California. When I am not at work, I enjoy traveling and spending time with my family. My daughter is newly married, and my son is a junior at the University of Wyoming. We have a lot of fun when we are together! I am originally from Huntington Beach, California. There's salt water in my veins :) I miss living near the beach, but the mountains, rivers, and lakes of Colorado do something for my soul.
I strive to make learning a world language challenging, engaging, and relevant. Spanish will continue to have a strong presence in the future of our world, so I take my job seriously. And, also, I strive to be as ridiculous as possible. Learning another language does NOT have to be a chore or bore. Just keep showing up, and great things will come from it.
