Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Diana Habib, and I am the Resource Specialist Teacher at Hamilton Elementary. I grew up in Egypt, so I am fully bilingual: fluent in speaking, listening, reading, and writing Arabic and English. I lived in Miami, Florida for ten years where I graduated with a Bachelor's in Exceptional Education with an ESOL Endorsement and where I acquired my General Education Credential. In Florida, I also worked and was trained in several schools in both Miami Dade and Fort Lauderdale counties. However, shortly after beginning my first teaching job, I got married and moved to Atlanta, Georgia where I worked for three consecutive years. While teaching in Fulton County, Georgia, I served as the Exceptional Education Department Chair and as a member of the leadership team, the Intensive School Focus Team, and the Common Core Training Team. I was also honored by being recognized as the Teacher of the Year (2012-2013). I moved to California in 2013, and I have been working at PUSD ever since. Through the extraordinary support of the Hamilton administrators and staff members, I was able to complete a Masters program in Instructional Technology with an Online Teaching Endorsement (2016). Among my hobbies and interests are participating in community service, teaching Sunday School, reading, writing, acting, singing, walking, and spending time with my husband.
