Hello! My name is Diane Iaria. I am a 20 year veteran teacher with Des Moines Public Schools. I have taught K-5 special education for 9 years and spent the last 10 years teaching 5th grade. This is my first year at Park Avenue and as an Instructional Coach and IB Coordinator. I am so excited to help support these amazing teachers. This school year will be very different from previous years and I’m looking forward to the coming challenges.
