Later moving to Seattle, she joined the Federal Way School District and spent the next 17 years working as a Special Needs Para Educator. Diane was regarded by both her supervisors and peers as a true educator with an amazing ability and a huge heart. The love between student and teacher was unmatched as she sought for a solution for each child to improve their ability and reach the goals needed.
