Elementary Secretary/Cheerleader Sponsor
Hi – I’m Diane Herndon, Elementary Secretary and cheer sponsor! This is my 2nd year at WISD. I graduated from Windthorst High School and Midwestern State University. I have 4 kids- Brooke who is a sophomore at Collin College, Sydney who is a senior and Hunter who is a sophomore at WHS – and Brady who is in 5th grade at Windthorst Elementary. Most of my free time is devoted to taking my kids to practices, watching games and working concession stands (lol). I love my job and seeing all of my elementary kiddos!! I’m excited for this upcoming year!!
Teaching is in my heart and soul. I am the daughter of two educators from Hickory Creek, Texas. In fact, three out of four of my parents’ children are all teachers. I graduated from Midwestern State University in 1998 with a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies (BSIS) degree. After graduation, I coached and taught P. E. for Lake Dallas I. S. D. (my alma mater) for a few years. I joined the Windthorst I. S. D. family in February 2003 and have taught kindergarten ever since. My husband, Shane, and I are always laughing and enjoying each other’s company. I love spending time with my family, traveling, and hiking. I am excited to instill a lifelong love of learning at
Windthorst I .S. D. on a daily basis.
