• Welcome to CTE/STEM!

    "Does that make sense?"

    Students will hear me ask that question frequently...but why?

    STEM is experiencing our natural world through hands-on investigations and analyzing what we know and what we learn to make sense of the world we live in every day!

    My name is Diana O’Neal, and I work in the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade CTE/STEM Connections Lab. I have been teaching for 18 years in Washington County. Teaching is my second career. My first career was working as a dental hygienist. I attended East Tennessee State University where I earned an Associate Degree in Dental Hygiene, a Bachelor of Science in General Studies, and a Master of Arts in Education. I am committed to learning and continuing to take courses to learn more about CTE (Career Technical Education) and STEM/STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, & Math). My dedication to teaching is strengthened by becoming a STEM certified teacher, an Eastman SciencElite, member of the National and Tennessee Science Teachers Associations.

    I grew up, attended school, and have lived in the area most of my life and have never found another place that I would rather be. I enjoy digging in the dirt, raising a garden, and preserving food. My husband and I like history and participate as 18th and 19th century reenactors for historical events. We enjoy camping, hiking, and just roughing it!
