Hi Friends! My name is Dianne and I'm a second grade teacher in little ol' Rhode Island. I've been teaching for 22 years, 17 of which have been in grade two. I absolutely LOVE my job so I feel very lucky. I've been married for 21 years to my best friend and I have three wonderful children. I have two girls and a boy and they range in age from 20 to 16. I'm so excited to be an author for Me and My Gang and I'm looking forward to sharing, collaborating and inspiring with all of you fantastic teachers. Right now, I'm in the middle of a giveaway to celebrate a successful school opening. Check out my blog at Hopelessly Devoted to Teaching for your chance to win a $10 Target giftcard. Good luck!
