Welcome to Ms. Archie's Kindergarten Class!!
Diane

Dear Parents:

I would like to welcome you and your child to Loring Community School.  My name is Diane Archie.  I am looking forward to a fun and exciting new school year at Loring.

This will be my 26th year teaching for Minneapolis Public Schools.  I have taught several different grades during my career from Kindergarten to 6th grade.  The majority of my time has been spent in Kindergarten.  Helping young children get a good and positive educational experience is what motivates me to be a Kindergarten teacher.

I have two grown daughters.  My older daughter got married eight years ago.  She also is a teacher.  She teaches high school English.  She had my granddaughter who is just turning 5 years old.  My second daughter is the proud mother of my three grandsons.  I strongly believe in the excellent education students receive at Loring.  Because of this belief, two of my grandsons attend Loring.  One is in fourth grade and and my youngest grandson is in third.

I received my Masters of Arts in Early Childhood Education from Concordia University in May 2013.  In my spare time I enjoy SHOPPING, going for walks around Lake Nokomis with my dog Yankee, reading, going to movies and especially spending time with my grandchildren and dog.

My dream for this year is that the students in my classroom will develop a love of learning.  This I hope will be achieved through their growth socially, emotionally and academically throughout the year.

Please feel free to contact me through e-mail or by school telephone:

I am looking forward to meeting and working with all my students and their families this year.
