Mrs. Diane Simonds

I have been with Carl Junction Schools since 2014 where I began as a 2nd-grade teacher.  The following year I began my role as District Instructional Technology Coach.  I graduated in 2005 from Missouri Southern State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and a certification in Early Childhood Education.  I completed my Master's Degree in Educational Technology, Technology Integration Specialist in 2014 from Pittsburg State University. I am a Google Certified Educator, Level 1, and currently serve on the Advisory Board for Missouri State University-Design Thinking Program. 

I am "GiGi" to two perfect grandkids!  Zaide, who is 10, and Lexi, who is 6.  I am also expecting two new granddaughters in March and May of 2022!  I'm so excited! Being a GiGi is the best job in the world!  I have been married for 1 year.  My husband's name is Scott and together we have 3 daughters, Erin, Becky, and Nikki, and our MinPin/Chihuahua, Si.
