Dianna Gonzales- Co-Teacher

Born and raised in Albuquerque, Dianna has a long history of working with young children. After high school, she says, “she always knew that she wanted to work with kids.” This determination led her to the University of New Mexico, where she studied Early Childhood Development. At AltaMonte Child Development Center, she gained experience with a variety of age groups (from infants to school-age children) and developed her career to become a lead preschool teacher. Of particular impact was Dianna’s experience initiating enrichment trips around the city with children, age 6 through 12, as a lead teacher in the summer program.

While she plans to pursue post-graduate classes in Early Childhood, Dianna is also a busy mom to her son, Cage. In her spare time, Dianna loves sewing and writing poetry: with lots of material and inspiration from her son, Dianna aspires to write a children’s book.
