Teacher: Diane Eastman
                                  Welcome to Venture High School! 
     This is my fourth year at Venture High School as the Reading/Title I teacher and my seventeenth year with the Coeur d'Alene School District. Last year, our English Department piloted a co-taught class combining reading and English. This year we are continuing that practice with 9th and 10th grade English courses where students will receive necessary interventions and strategies to become successful lifelong learners.
    I am a proud graduate of both North Idaho College and the University of Idaho. Go Vandals!
    In 2016, I was humbly chosen as 'Rookie of the Year' for the Coeur d'Alene School District.
    I have lived in Idaho for twenty years with my husband and raised one beautiful daughter, who teaches English through IDVA,  and another happy, healthy daughter starting fourth grade this fall.
