Greetings students and parents of Dominion High School! My Name is Dianne Kuhn and I have been a Marketing/Business Educator since 1997. Twelve of those years have been in High School and six at the Community College level. My teaching experience has all been in North Carolina. In that state I have taught practically every Business and Marketing course available. This is my first year teaching here at Dominion High School, and I am excited for the upcoming year! I am teaching Introduction to Business and Marketing.
I was born and raised in Vienna and Falls Church and graduated from George C. Marshall High School. I then attended Northern Virginia Community College, where I majored in Pre-Science, planning to earn a degree in Dental Hygiene. Things change, and I married and moved to California where I worked in Retail Management and Banking. I continued my Banking career in Texas as well as in the first 4 years I lived in North Carolina. I have an entrepreneurial spirit and owned a home day care business and then a lawn maintenance business in North Carolina. I earned an undergraduate degree in Business and Marketing Teacher Education and my MBA from University of North Carolina at Greensboro. I have submitted all requirements to the State of Virginia Department of Education and hope to have my official Virginia teaching license soon.
I am also a co-advisor for the Dominion DECA Chapter. I have twelve years’ experience as a DECA advisor and am passionate about the value DECA involvement brings to students. DECA prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in both high schools and colleges all over the world. You can find out more about our chapter here and more about DECA on their website, and you can also visit Virginia DECA's website .
On a personal note, I have three adult children that I am enormously proud of! Jennie is an attorney in Charlotte NC. Gerry, ALSO IN Charlotte NC, is a sale representative for Duck Head beer for a three state territory, and Greg manages a restaurant in DC. They attended UNC Chapel Hill, UNC Greensboro, and Virginia Tech, respectively. I love the outdoors and participatory sports like skiing and tennis. I also typically am involved with league bowling.
I am looking forward to a great year here at Dominion High School in CTE. If you ever need to contact me, please feel free to email me at ‘Dianne.Kuhn@LCPS.org or you can call the school at (571) 434-4400.
