    Welcome to my page!! 
    My name is Rene Diestelkamp and I am the Team 6A ELA (English) teacher at Lange Middle School. 
    I have a bachelor's degree in Middle School Education- English. I have been teaching for three years. I previously taught in Jefferson City before joining the Columbia School District. This is my fourth year at Lange, but my second year as a teacher at Lange. My first two years at Lange, I was in the Media Center working with all students and their iPads. 
    I grew up in a small town called St. James, MO with my dad, mom, and younger sister (who got married this summer!!) I love to read books, bake, spend time with family and friends, travel, and watch movies!! I am a fan of the St. Louis Cardinals. My go -to drink is Dr. Pepper (the key to my heart). I am very much looking forward to a some-what normal school year with your kiddos!!!
