Mrs. Diana Hancock » Home



I was born and raised in Mexicali, Baja California.  I had a wonderful childhood with my parents, one brother, three sisters, and surrounded by grandparents, uncles, aunts and many cousins.

Personal Mission Statement:

As an educator in the Seventh-Day Adventist Educational system, my foremost goal is to cooperate with the school, family, church, and most of all with the Holy Spirit as I teach and model the students the character of a Christian life.

In the classroom my goal is to teach students to learn self-directedness, goal setting, and the process of making good choices. I want to inspire them to strive for their personal best, regardless of their strengths or weaknesses.

I hold high expectations for my students and teach them to do the same for themselves. It is my responsibility to create an effective and safe learning environment where students can learn without fear of failure as they practice a foreign language.

It is my goal to meet the needs of all learners, raise academic and social expectations, and continue to make learning fun and exciting.


Attended the University of Baja California.

Endorsed in Spanish and English as a Second Language.    


Began teaching in 1989

Taught at EAA since 2002


Developed the Spanish I, II, III, and IV curriculum for a private district at Oceanside, Vista, San Diego, and Mission Viejo.

 My favorite Bible Text:

 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and don’t depend on your own understanding. Put the Lord first in everything you do and He will direct your path”. Proverbs 3:5, 6.
