Bachelor of Arts in Physical Education (K - 12) Master of Arts in Sport Science & Pedagogy
My name is Diana Deal and I am your Physical Education teacher! I grew up in Cabarrus County and I am very honored to work in the school system I attended. I studied at Appalachian State University, where I played softball and obtained my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Physical Education. Upon graduating from ASU, I became a Graduate Assistant at Gardner-Webb University, where I received my Master of Arts Degree in Sports Science and Pedagogy. In 2010, I was hired as a full-time Assistant Softball Coach at Gardner-Webb University. I coached there for 5 years prior to moving back to Cabarrus County and beginning my teaching career at Pitts School Road Elementary. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, playing sports (softball & volleyball), and going to the lake. Wakeboarding is my favorite summertime hobby. This is my 10th year teaching elementary PE and I look forward to a great year at MPES! Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
