Diane Thole

Tenth Grade Algebra II/Pre-Calc teacher

Diane-TholeWhy are you an educator? Why do you love teaching?
I started teaching in the fall of 2002, and I think what drew me to it was all the caring and motivated teachers I personally had in high school. I really enjoyed peer tutoring and volunteer tutoring when I was a high school junior and senior and while I went to Fordham University in the Bronx.

What makes the School of the Future experience different from others you’ve had?
SOF’s small team structure is like nothing I have ever had at any other school I have worked at before. Likewise, I have never before had the opportunity to teach an entire class in ninth grade and then teach that entire class again in eleventh grade. Having the non-pressure situation of not teaching to a Regents Exam is something that drew me to SOF. Being able to create class activities that I can spend more than a cursory day or two on makes SOF special.

What other activities/programs (at SOF or outside of the school) are you involved with?
Outside of school, I am hoping to get more involved with the organization Girls on the Run. GOTR is a non-profit group that works with middle school girls in NYC and helps them train for a 5K run while developing their self-esteem and confidence skills.

What is your advice to aspiring teachers?
I would suggest aspiring teachers try to get involved in volunteer organizations like NY Cares or America Reads to see if working with students is something that they really want to do. Also, go to as many different job fairs or networking events as possible. Interview at as many different types of schools as possible, because you’ll never know what the “perfect” type of school is for you.

Why do you like working at SOF?
I think watching students from different cultures, socioeconomic backgrounds, and family situations really hang out with each other and get to know each other is fascinating. At other schools where I have worked, it was always apparent which kids were in which social groups or cliques. I find that this is not the case at SOF. Plus, Marguerite knows every kid and their family, too! I find that you don’t get that in your typical, run-of-the-mill NYC public school.
