Welcome to Mrs. Diana Smith's class page

 

Welcome to 4DS!   My name is Diana Smith and it is my pleasure to welcome your child to my classroom for a wonderful year of learning.  This year I will be share-teaching grade 4 with Ms.  Tammy Dikeman.  It is exciting to be part of the grade 4 team and the wonderful Cooper's Crossing school community.

I live just west of Airdrie with my husband and our little dog, Issie.  My family and I enjoy spending time traveling and exploring new cultures; camping and taking long walks.

I have been teaching for 25 years plus and have been lucky enough to travel and experience different places in the world as an international teacher. I believe that being compassionate and caring is important in life and also in my classroom.  I also believe that students need to feel safe and happy in order to be fully available for learning.  I strive to provide all of these things in my classroom while ensuring students have meaningful and challenging experiences that inspire a lifelong love for learning.  I am excited to dive into our year of learning together, exploring, leading and discovering together.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns by writing a note in your child's agenda or by email at dianasmith@rockyview.ab.ca.
