Surviving Social Studies with Mrs. Stanley

I am Dianna Stanley.  I've been teaching at Vineland Middle School since 1995.  I am originally from Bryant, Arkansas and moved to Pueblo in 1994.  I graduated from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock with a Liberal Arts degree and earned my teaching credentials from Henderson State University.

I have been married to Roy since 1994. He is the men's soccer coach at Colorado State University at Pueblo.  We have two boys, Dylan and Logan,  who are active in competitive soccer.  We spend our weekends traveling the state for games.  We consider ourselves the ultimate soccer family.


I teach 6th grade and 8th grade Social Studies and am the Student Council sponsor.

I love Vineland Middle School and the students who come through my classes.  I strongly believe our students receive a good educational foundation to help them be successful in the future.
