Hello. My name is Diana. Welcome to my profile. I am glad you are viewing my profile to learn more about me.
I am a Gemini, woman-child, who enjoys both of the jobs I hold. I have been teaching an educated and specialized group of students for the last seven years. Teaching is my great pride and joy. My students never cease to amaze me with their innovation and creativity. From time to time I will post updates on my teaching either here on POF or on my Instagram account “Diana.dolphin6”.
I am on POF primarily to make a friendship with a gentleman that shares over half of my interests and see what can develop from the friendship. I am in no rush to begin a relationship. I would like to take the time to build a foundation of friendship before diving into a relationship. I really want to get to know the entire man I am communicating with through a friendship as it will be the glue to solidify a long lasting relationship.
If you contact me first, please list what interests we share in common. I have many from which to choose.
Anyone who knows Geminis knows that we are a study of contradictions, spontaneity, eccentricity, and we shine with our own brilliant inner star, with a smile ready to flash at the sheer beauty of living.
It is strange for a Gemini, but I am also, conversely, a shy woman-child. Perhaps that is my dual nature. Though I am extroverted by necessity; when I perform, teach or make a presentation in front of a long group.
Add to the mix...I'm a Seattle transplant. A love of nature, water, animals, culture, art, music & education was bred into me. As well as camping, canoeing, horseback riding & hiking. Naiad or Nymph. Seattle is such a wonderful place to grow up & my heart will always have a bond to my hometowm.

I have traveled outside of the USA and across the USA.
I am willing to commute up to 60 miles to maintain a friendship/relationship. Distance will not be prohibitive in me finding my ONE.

Spectacular day teaching. I have new students joining me. In the timed writing for my fiction/nonfiction class two of my students wrote the most delightful two poems on the spot, filled with rich descriptions and details.
My students never cease to amaze me. One is nearly finished writing her epic fantasy novel. 49 chapters and going. Another one had 3 short children's stories accepted for publication. And I an currently designing, editing and laying out a collection of poetry for another student. I'm so proud of them!
My featured read at the Women''s Festival at Fullerton College was awesome!! I had a great audience that was really riveted on my work. I loved it!
Beautiful day teaching. Still floating on my pride of my students. Restless tonight. I am one of the featured poets at a festival in 12 hours. I'm super excited. And though I've been performing for years, I'm nervous. Lol!
