Welcome to Child Development

Diane Langfelder - Child Development


Corral Dunes in Utah

I have been a teacher for most of my adult life. I have taught a variety of courses, mostly centered on hands-on curriculum. I have extensive experience working with families and their young children of infancy age through preschool.  I have also worked as an exhibit manager in a science museum and a science curriculum specialist in 3rd and 5th grade classrooms.  Contrary to how that sounds, I am not a "scientist," nor am I filled with scientific knowledge.  What I do have is an abiding curiosity about the world around me and the people in it.

Personally, my interests are varied.  I love all types of music, art, nature, photography, politics and writing, not necessarily in that order.  I am a single mom, having raised my son alone since he was 12 years. He is now a man who, I am please to say has grown to be a wonderful human being. He brings me joy every day.
