Ms. Diane Zaida

Welcome to our class website! This is my first year teaching at TEC.  Up until last year, I taught math, including all of the math courses we currently offer at TEC.  I'm excited to be teaching Exploring Computer Science and Engineering Design and Development this year!

I grew up in Santa Barbara, California and spent most of my life in the area.  Three years ago I decided to attend grad school at the University of Washington and traded the sun and the sand of the Central Coast for the rain and the evergreens of Puget Sound.

My free time is consumed by two passions-bikes and soccer. I ride and race everything from track bikes to mountain bikes and on any given day, you can probably find my riding some sort of bike. I'm also a season ticket holder to Seattle Reign--the local women's professional soccer team and spent a good part of last summer in Vancouver attending the Women's World Cup.
