Knowledge empowers. In the third branch of Shine, “Shine Bright”, we aim to enlighten our minds through personal study as well as through sponsored events namely workshops, seminars, and forums. These events will feature experts in a variety of fields such as health care, education, parenting, finances, etc. As we educate ourselves on a breadth of subjects, we begin to tap into the true capacity of our minds, where we are not only able to do more and know more, but BECOME more.
Hello, I am Diana Bird.
My husband Michael and I celebrated our 30th anniversary this year. We met at college in 1985 where I was earning my Professional Preschool Education Degree. We have 5 spectacular children and 4 grandchildren. Being a grandma is the BEST!
We moved to Boise in 2011 from Battle Ground, Washington. While in Washington I spent 7 years working for the Community Education Department. I taught in many capacities there including Program Director of Summer Camps, Preschool Curriculum Development and teacher, Red Cross Safe On My Own Program (primarily to elementary students), Parenting and Discipline workshops, Teacher Inservice Instructor, and more. I am excited to be Shine Bright’s Director of Education! I would love to know the kinds of classes and workshops you are interested in attending.
Let’s be a beacon of light and a resource for empowerment and knowledge in our community. Together we can make it happen!
