Diane was born and grew up in Beaumont, Texas which is in the deep south east corner of the state. Diane is from a family of five. She has a sister that worked in banking for 45 years and a brother that just recently retired from DuPont. Diane is very close to her siblings and cherishes the time she is able to spend with family. Diane raised three children, two boys and a girl. She has seven grandchildren.

After graduating from Beaumont High School she attended Lamar University in hopes of acquiring a degree in accounting. She soon met and married the children's father. She entered the work force when her youngest was 12. She worked in the corporate world for many years but always felt something was missing and she now feels that working with children is her calling.

Diane has these ideas about children, bearing in mind that if anyone had all the right answers for raising children they would bottle and sell it. Communication with the children, as well as the parents, is probably the most important aspect of this type job. She has always felt that in order to do a good job and be respected by the children she must be able to relate to them on their level. She feels it is important to let children know who the adult is, who is in charge. Realizing that all children are different and, what works for one might not necessarily work for another, she tries to allow them to develop their talents and strengths by making good choices and decisions. She feels it is important that a child be able to choose the activities they participate in but once they make that decision they must follow through. They should not be allowed to quit just because it's hard, no fun, etc. She thinks everyone has talents that may not be apparent even to the child. She feels there is nothing more rewarding than knowing you have been a part of their development and making them all they can be.

In an employer, Diane would like to know that she has their respect and she would want to be treated with honesty and fairness. She would want her employer to stand behind and support the disciplinary actions she has given and if for some reason they don't agree, it could be discussed in private not in front of the children.

Ruby S. says:
Diane is the sweetest, kindest, most gentle person I know. She started caring for my twin girls when they were three weeks old and I never have to worry about them when they are in Diane's care. She has become such a part of our family and we want to keep her forever!!

Diane T. responds:
I very much appreciate all the kind words, but being nice around people like you is easy because of your very genuine nature that seems to come naturally from your heart. It is a pleasure to work for a family that takes such good care of their children and puts their best interest first. Diane
Heidi T. says:
I hired Diane after having several interviews with other prospective sitters for my son. She was very friendly and responsible in the interview. After hiring Diane, she quickly became an asset to our family. My son has mild autism and she is patient and kind with him. She is very responsible and follows through with any rules I have set while I am away. It has been a few weeks since we have used Diane since... More

Heidi Thank you for your kind words. I feel it was a privilege and pleasure caring for R. He is a very well behaved young man and pleasant to be around. I am looking forward to caring for R in the future. Diane
Stacy C. says:
Diane has watched my boys several times now. The children love her and respond positively to her. Diane has also always been very engaged with the kids (talking to them, listening to them). She has been prompt and very easy to work with. I will continue to have Diane come watch my kids. I also highly recommend her to other families.

Diane T. responds:
I appreciate all the kind words. I have worked for years in the corporate world never realizing how rewarding this type of work could be. Children give me a great deal of enjoyment. As said by Art Linkletter, "Kids Say the Darndest Things" and how true that is. I have always felt that in order to do a good job and be respected by the children I must be able to relate to them on their level. I consider myself... More
