Mrs. Dyan Melissa Hershman
I first graduated with a degree in World Geography from California State University, Long Beach in 1993, having high hopes of being a foreign diplomat. After marrying in 1993, I decided to focus on our own national interests by becoming a teacher and serving our nation's most treasured and valuable asset...our children. I then recieved a teaching degree from UNT and after several years in the classroom, received my Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I have taught both students and teachers...given professional development workshops locally and around the world, and written several books and manuals on effective communication, classroom management, and teaching strategies. I have taught at both elementary and middle school levels. Currently, I am teaching 8th grade English and Reading. I love sharing my passion for reading and writing with students, as well as making positive contributions to thier lives academically, socially and emotionally. I like to have fun while learning, I am flexible and understanding, and I strive to create a calm and collaborative learning environment.
