Diane LaFrance, Ed.D.

Assistant Professor of Education

My teaching philosophy is that I believe all students are capable of learning. While, they all do not learn at the same rate, with different methods and strategies it is possible. I believe that it is our job to prepare students to be successful in society. Students must be able to function in the real world.
