Ms. Dieckhoff
I came to Puyallup Online Academy (POA) last year from Tacoma School of the Arts (SOTA).  I was in the Tacoma School District from 1999 until coming here.  I am excited to be at POA and work with students in an alternative learning environment.  My time at SOTA really taught me the value of alternative learning experiences for students and how important it is to provide students with a supportive structure that meets their needs!

This is my 28th year in education.  Most of that has been in counseling although I also have certificates in elementary education, special education and program management.  I have three children - all grown - and 2 grandsons, a granddaughter and another grandson on the way.  

My office hours are 9-3:30 Monday through Friday.  I am in the office every morning at 8:30 to return phone calls and read emails.  If you need to contact me, you can reach me at:
