My name is Diane Thierer and I am the Middle School Religion teacher.  I have taught Religion classes for 13 years and have served as the Director of Faith Formation in two parishes in the Des Moines Diocese, St. Elizabeth Seton in Carlisle and Our Lady's Immaculate Heart Church in Ankeny.  My previous teaching experience was at St. Joseph's School in Marion, IA and Dowling Catholic High School in West Des Moines.

I have been blessed to have experienced a Catholic education during my Kindergarten through High School years.  My undergraduate years were spent at Coe College in Cedar Rapids, IA where I majored in Religion, History, minored in Psychology and received my Secondary Teaching Certificate.  I recently completed my Masters in Pastoral Theology at St. Ambrose University, Davenport, IA.

My husband and I have three adult children who lovingly keep us busy.

Knowing, understanding and practicing the faith is important to the development of adolescents and I am excited that I have the opportunity to work with our students in this capacity. I look forward to partnering with parents, the school community and parish in this faith formation journey.
