Mrs. Diana DeReese

A Little About Me!

Hello! My name is Diana DeReese and I’m excited to be teaching fifth grade at a genuinely fantastic school, Gavilan Peak.

This will be my 29th year of teaching students from first to sixth grades in Ohio, Texas, and our beautiful Arizona.

Graduating from Ohio Wesleyan University, I earned my Bachelor's degree in Education and psychology, later earning my Master’s Degree in Curriculum Instruction for Reading from the Grand Canyon University in 2006.

I am blessed to have a wonderful husband and two beautiful kids. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, running, swimming, biking, being in nature, reading, and going to the movies. Passions include coaching as a Gavilan Peak Cross Country coach, the North Valley Jaguar Track and Field Coach for 5-8th grade students and the Assistant Cross Country and Track coach at Boulder Creek High School.
I look forward to another fantastic year at Gavilan Peak and Boulder Creek!
