Meet the Teacher

Welcome to my Classroom
Diane Hallowell
Hello! Thank you for visiting my web page.
I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Wheaton College, (in Massachusetts), a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Western Oregon State College, and a National Board Certification in Middle Childhood General Education.  I was voted the Bell Elementary Teacher of the Year in 2009-2010.

I have been teaching fifth grade in Western North Carolina for 23 years, (YIKES), twenty-one of which have been here at Bell. Prior to coming to Bell, I taught 2 years in Haywood County but welcomed the idea of teaching closer to home, as I live here in Buncombe County.
