Diane Waits

Third Grade


Ms. Waits always knew she wanted to be a teacher.  After earning a B.S. Degree in Dance Education from UNC Greensboro, she taught dance in public and private school for many years.   After teaching 5 year olds in a Christian preschool, she decided to get her K-3 Early Childhood certification.  A native North Carolinian, she now lives in Cornelius on Lake Norman with her cat, Percy.  She has two grown sons, Ryan and Trevor.

Why GCA?

Ms. Waits’ ideal teaching situation revolves around exactly what GCA offers…a Christ-centered curriculum, supportive parents and staff, and wonderful resources to ensure each student learns to their highest potential.

Favorite Bible verse:
Philippians 4:4-7

“Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again—rejoice! Let everyone see that you are considerate in all you do. Remember, the Lord is coming soon. Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.”
