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.
