Mrs. Diane Ames - PE Teacher
Hi. I'm Mrs. Ames. This is my 21st year teaching, but my 17th in District 56. In addition to teaching PE, I run Dance Club, Club Fit, and Sports Club. I have been teaching fitness classes since 1993 and am certified in just about everything, including personal training and sports nutrition. Currently, I teach nights and weekends at the Lindenhurst Health Center, Kenosha RecPlex, & the Gurnee Centre Club. Over the past couple years, I earned top placement in a few nearby bodybuilding & physique competitions and participated in some 5K mud runs. I have 2 kids (Scott in 7th grade and Raegan in 4th) who keep me very busy. In addition to working as an engineer, my husband trains hunting dogs for NAVHDA and judges tests for the NADKC. As of now, we have an English pointer and a mini dachshund. They keep us busy, too. Please feel free to contact me at any time. I look forward to helping your kids stay fit!
