Mrs. Diane Combs

Welcome to eighth grade U.S. history! I look forward to working with both you and your child during this upcoming year. You can expect me to be fair, consistent, open-minded, and willing to assist your child in any way to help him/her succeed.

I grew up in Charlotte County, attending East Elementary, Punta Gorda Junior High, and graduating from Charlotte High School.  I earned my Bachelor’s of Science from Florida State University in English Education and began teaching middle school in 1994.  I am blessed with a wonderful husband and three beautiful children ages: 17, 14, and 13. Being a mom helps me better understand a parents’ perspective on education and wanting only the best for your child.  I treat your child the way I would want someone to treat mine.

I have taught middle school in our county for twenty-eight years and could not imagine a better profession.  I love teaching and hope that your child will be able to recognize the dedication I have to his/her education.   

I expect my students to work hard, have fun, and learn a world of new information by the time they walk out of my class at the end of this year. If you ever have any questions, concerns, or comments, please contact me by email, Remind, or phone. I strive to keep parents in the know as to what is happening in the classroom, and I hope you will do the same for me. I look forward to the upcoming school year.
