Mrs. Diana (MIchelle) Van Tassell

I am entering my 26th year teaching. I am a graduate of West Virginia University (Go Mountaineers!) where I earned a B.S. degree in Exercise Physiology.  Additionally, I earned a Master's degree in Special Education, Pk-12 ED/LD from George Mason University.

In my free time, you can find me at the football field, where my youngest son plays football for Saint Francis University (Go Red Flash!).

For me, physical science is the best of both worlds, in that it has something for everyone! We will study physics and chemistry, two different branches in science, and my hope is that you will find the love for science in one of those two areas we will study. I am so excited for this school year; I know that by working together, we can make it an awesome one!

How to contact me:  Please understand that during the school day, I am actively working with students and may not be able to respond immediately.   However, I will respond within 36 hours to emails.  If you have a time-sensitive message, please call Harmony at (540) 751-2500. The secretaries will make sure that I get the message.
