About Mrs. Diorides
My name is Yvonne Diorides and I am the Math and Science grades 4 and 5 looping teacher. I graduated with my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from The University of South Florida- GO BULLS! Thanks to my father, a retired pilot, I traveled and grew up in many different countries. I moved to the states when I was in fourth grade and enjoy implementing all I’ve experienced and learned into my classroom.
I believe teaching is a calling, not just a job. Spending time with every student individually is truly enjoyable for me. By understanding each child’s unique learning style, I have the ability to adapt my lessons to accommodate their specific needs. My goal is to help develop a love for learning within your child by facilitating a welcoming, innovative and active learning environment. I believe that lighting a spark of creativity ignites a passion for learning.
Building a foundation for the love of learning must first be paved on strong moral grounds. I believe in bringing out leadership qualities in my students such as honesty, courage, integrity, and perseverance while adhering to The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey (The EIGHT habits in 5th grade adding Habit 8: Finding Your Voice).
Rowlett is a wonderful school full of leadership opportunity for all students! I feel very thankful to be a part of the Rowlett family!
