Diane Weeden, Principal

Welcome!  I am Diane Weeden, Principal of Jennie Reid Elementary.  My journey to this point has been an interesting one.  At the tender age of 9, I knew that I wanted to become a teacher, so I could help children the way my third grade teacher helped me!  I graduation from the High School for Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice in HISD in 1991 and headed to the University of Houston, where I received my Bachelors of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies.  I went on to earn my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction, with a specialization in Instructional Technology from Houston Baptist University.  Next, I earned my Principal Certification through a Program called I Teach Texas.  I have been in the education field for 20 years, beginning my career in Pasadena ISD, where I taught for 7 years.  In August of 2002, I came to La Porte ISD as an Instructional Technology/Media Specialist, where I enjoyed teaching students and training teachers to use technology at Lomax Elementary for 6  years.  After I received my Principal Certification, I landed the position of Assistant Principal at Lomax Elementary in 2011, where I served for 1 year.  I spent 2012-2014 as Assistant Principal at College Park Elementary, then moved to Bayshore Elementary to serve as Assistant Principal from 2014-2017.  In February of 2017, I was asked to serve as Interim Principal of Jennie Reid Elementary for the remainder of the school year.  This is my first "official" year as Principal at Jennie Reid and I am honored to work with an amazing group of teachers, staff, students, and parents!
