TCS is Home

You may have noticed a familiar face heading up a new space at TCS. This year, Diane Eakins, who has worked at TCS as a teachers’ assistant, joins the front office staff as administrative assistant.  

Diane grew up in Rochester, New York on Lake Ontario. Diane has a close relationship with her family and says, “My mom is one of 16 children, and my family all lives within a 10 mile radius from each other in New York.”

Diane attended a small 2 year college in New York, studying transportation and logistics. A job transfer brought her to Orlando, where she met and married her husband, Ricky. After working at the airport for 8 years and then in sales for Data Security and Disaster Recovery for 4 years, Diane chose to stay home with their two children, Connor and Cara. Connor, TCS class of 2013, and Cara, TCS class of 2014, attended The Weekday School, and then attended the The Christ School from kindergarten through 8th grade. Cara is now a Senior at Boone High School and is dual enrolled at Valencia. Connor will attend UNF this fall.

Diane says, “I started volunteering at The Weekday School, then it developed into working 4 years as a 3 day 3 assistant teacher. I was hired by The Christ School, and worked as a teachers’ assistant for the past 12 years. I am happy to now be working in the front office. My children have thrived in so many ways at TCS and have moved on, but I can’t  leave this wonderful place!  I love God and I love our school!  I am happy to serve our teachers and staff, our families, and most of all our students. This is my big family in Florida within a 10 mile radius.  It is home for me!”
