IBDP VA Examiner since 2007

Diana started her teaching career in the 1990’s in Montreal as a Teaching Assistant in the Graduate School of Art Education, while also running art programmes for all age groups at the Recreation Center nearby. Twenty years ago she took up her first international post at the American International School-Riyadh, in Saudi Arabia. Since then Diana has taught art full time, including the IB Diploma Programme. She has been an IBDP Visual Arts examiner since 2007. She also taught two full cycles of Theory of Knowledge and supervised Extended Essays. In addition, Diana has had experience as an Arts Coordinator and Team Leader. 

Diana believes that art is an exceptionally effective means of communication that allows all children and adolescents to clarify ideas, balance emotions and engage with contemporary issues in meaningful ways. Diana is ambitious for her students’ overall development as highly articulate and productive world citizens. To empower her students she teaches visual literacy and critical thinking through art.

Aside from her passion for art and architecture, Diana loves the outdoors and enjoys activities in nature, such as power-walking and yoga. She loves reading and writing in general and is multicultural in her choices of literature and film.
