Mrs. Diaz

Welcome West Captains!


Hi, My name is Donna Diaz.  This will be my 5th year teaching, all here at West! I have taught Science, ELA, and Math.  Math is my absolute favorite subject to teach.  I get very excited and passionate while teaching Math,  my students in turn get excited to learn Math! 

I am a mother to 3 amazing children: Savannah (18), Hunter (12), and Elliott (10).  I have been  married  to my husband Peter for 3 years. I was born and raised in Biloxi.  I love the color purple, sunshine, butterflies, coffee, and the beach.

I graduated from William Carey University in May of 2017 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education.  I began teaching here at West in January 2017 as support staff, and long term substitute. 2017-2018 I taught 4th grade Science. 2018-2019, I taught 4th Science and ELA.  2019-2020, I taught 4th grade Math. 2020-2021 I taught 4th grade all subjects.   I am very proud to be a part of the Gulfport School District, and very happy to be a West Captain!
