Mrs. Dianna Singler

Welcome to Learning Connections and Hickory Ridge High School. 

The Learning Connections program allows students to strive for their highest potential within an environment that nurtures special limitations and fosters growth. I believe each student can achieve goals and accomplish dreams with hard work, responsibility, accountability, and integrity; and we will help them each step of the way. The LC classroom provides supports to students as they work toward achieving their academic and social goals. 

In my seventh year of classroom teaching, I earned a Master's of Art in Teaching in Special Education in December 2016 after spending more than 20 years in the public relations and marketing field – working for the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta and with various NASCAR drivers and sponsors afterward. My bachelor’s degree is in public relations from the University of Florida. I always had an interest in education and decided to make the leap in 2013 by attending classes at the University of North Carolina - Charlotte.

Continuing our remote learning journey, I look forward to seeing all the students’ faces once again even if it is through the computer as we meet Monday through Thursday in live classes to start the school year.  Use the link to gain access to Canvas courses. Here students will find their courses and information needed for each day's activities.  The Canvas link is also on the HRHS website's front page. Links to the NCVPS courses are also provided within these courses where appropriate. 

During the Fall 2021 semester in Learning Connections, we will be collaborating on the following subjects in the classroom:

1st period: Social Skills 

2nd period: Blended Math Intro and Math 2

3rd period: English II, III and IV

4th period: Planning

Away from school, our family enjoys attending and watching sports events along with going to concerts. We also like going to our son's hockey games and listening to him play the saxophone for Hickory Ridge High School Marching Band -- our dogs often join in during practice sessions at home. As time allows, we travel around the United States, taking in as many sites as we can.  

Please feel free to contact me anytime through email ( or phone (704-260-6630).  Remind app is also available to reach me via text.  I will return emails and phone calls within 24 hours at the latest.
