Mrs. Diana Riechel-Bean
I was born in Bogota, Colombia and I was adopted by an American family when I was 4 years old. I went to elementary school in New Jersey but then moved to Michigan where I finished grade school and went on to college at Oakland University. I graduated with a BA in Communications with a minor in Spanish. I also played tennis all four years of college.
I taught tennis lessons to children and adults most of my career but then I decided that I wanted more out of my profession and decided to receive my teaching certification in Special Education. After teaching at the elementary level, I realized I missed tennis too much and decided to take my career futher by teaching High School and coaching as well!!
I started teaching at Longs Creek Elementary as a Special Education Assistant for one year and then was blessed to become a Special Education teacher at Olmos Elementary School. I have been with NEISD for 5 years and I have enjoyed teaching the students so very much. They have taught me so much and I am grateful for what I have learned from them. As I continue my educational path at Madison High School, I know I will learn even more from not only my High School students but all the High School athletes as well.
My husband and I were married over the summer and we had a wonderful honeymoon in London and Paris. We watched Wimbledon for 3 days and it was definitely the highlight of our trip!
My 13 year old son who attends the STEM program at NIMITZ Middle School and he wants to be a meteorologist when he grows up and is in honors band. My step daughter enjoys playing volleyball and my step son loves playing percussion in band.
I love spending time with my husband and our 3 kids. On my free time, I love to play tennis, watch tennis and eat lots of healthy foods!
I look forward to continuing my journey here at Madison HS as a Special Education teacher and as the Head Tennis Coach!
