Mrs. Diane Eighmey-Kenney

My name is Diane Eighmey-Kenney. I have two daughters, a husband and a cat named Pippa. I am originally from the State of New York. I have lived and taught in many states in the U.S. In addition, prior to living in Illinois, I lived out of the country in Dubai, UAE for 6 1/2 years.

Valley View has been my home for over 10 years. I began my career in Valley View at BJ Ward as a supported education/resource teacher in fifth grade. Following many successful years in fifth grade as a co-teacher, I transferred to Pioneer Elementary School. Third grade at Pioneer has provided me with a rewarding experience with a new curriculum.I have had the opportunity to teach Special Education across many grade levels and programs. My teaching experience has ranged from pre-school through high school, and self-contained to resource. I consider teaching special education my calling, and I thank you for sharing your children with me.
