Instructional Coach

Diana Reeves, Instructional Coach

Diana knew from a young age that she wanted to be a teacher and work with children. Growing up in New Jersey, she chose a local school well known for its robust education program. She graduated from Montclair State University in 2005, with dual certifications in early childhood education and elementary education.

Shortly after college graduation, Diana and her husband, Alex, started a family, and Diana grew increasingly interested in the childcare field. She worked as a daycare supervisor and director in New Jersey for four years before she, her husband and then young son relocated to Pennsylvania. Once in Pennsylvania, Diana worked for Community Services for Children for several years as a lead teacher in a Head Start classroom. She found working in a project-based hands-on learning environment extremely inspiring and close to what she knew as best practices in education. Shortly after, she discovered Seven Generations and enrolled her son for kindergarten.

Diana knew that she wanted to re-enter the field of education with elementary age students, but returned to school to pursue her Master’s degree first. After obtaining a Master of Education degree and a Reading Specialist Certificate from Kutztown University and graduating in December of 2012, Diana became the third reading specialist at Seven Generations, in January 2013. She joined our fourth-grade staff in the 2014-15 school year. Hoping to inspire young readers to genuinely enjoy reading and help it “click” for them, Diana truly feels she’s found her “home” and her passion teaching at Seven Gen. Contact Diana Reeves at was born and raised in Bethlehem, PA. After graduating from college, she moved to Virginia to work as a kindergarten teacher for two years before relocating back to Pennsylvania to be closer to her family. After living and teaching in Philadelphia for the past three years, Jaimee is thrilled to be back in the Lehigh Valley!
