About Diane

Caring for people of all ages is and always been my passion and purpose in life. I have volunteered in hospitals since I was a teenager, cared for my two elderly grandmothers, raised four beautiful children, and taught school Grades K-8. I have also been a nanny, pre-school teacher, and worked in an infant care center in Orinda. Having left the teaching profession where I taught and cared for children all day, I am searching to fulfill my dream in the caregiving field. I love spending time with seniors offering them companionship and loving service. Being a live-in nanny to two beautiful girls was a highlight in my life. For me, there's nothing more fulfilling than serving others in need.

    Experience & Education

    6th Grade teacher

    Dec 2007 - Dec 2011
    Hillview Junior High
    I taught 6th grade language arts history, and math in a very challenging but rewarding environment. There were many very needy children economically, socially, academically, and emotionally. I loved working with these special kids and they loved me, visiting me at lunchtime, before and after school and most of all, sharing what was going on in their personal lives. I was sorry I had to leave to take care of a family member who needed me at the time.
