Hello to my new family of students in 5C! My name is Kathy Diaz and I am from the USA. I was very lucky to grow up enjoying the beaches, deserts, and mountains of San Diego, California. I graduated from San Diego State University, Phi Beta Kappa, Magna Cum Laude, and was Graduation Commencement Speaker. I hold a Master’s Degree and National Board Certificate. My husband, Rudy, and I just celebrated our 37th anniversary and have shared a full life of adventure. Now that our three daughters are grown-up with families of their own, we decided to embark on a whole new adventure by moving to China five years ago. I especially love teaching Robotics! I just returned from the National Robotics Engineering Center & Carnegie Mellon Robotics Institute, sharpening my skills and opening my eyes to amazing research happening with robotics! I look forward to sharing my experiences with my new students, coaching the SIS Robotics Team its second year, and enjoying a new year of learning together!
