    "I cannot teach anybody anything, I can only make them think." - Socrates
  • Welcome to our Science World!

    "Does that make sense?"

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

    Science 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 teach 6th, 7th, and 8th grade science. I have been teaching for 17 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 continue taking courses to learn more about science and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math). My dedication to teaching science is strengthened in 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!
