Hello! My name is Diane Gallivan and I am the Media Specialist here at West Creek Elementary. I love being a 'Coyote', and a teacher of information literacy skills. I earned my Masters in Library and Information Science through Trevecca Nazarene University, and I hold a B.S. in Elementary Education from Austin Peay State University. This will be my 27th year of teaching. My husband, Kerry and I have 3 sons. We have 1 grandson, whom we adore and much of our time is taken up with him & our sons. We build great readers here at West Creek! Every day we promote wonderful books to the students. Students may select, read and test over many books here at West Creek, and their successes are rewarded through compliments, A.R. Rewards and reading clubs. I hope you enjoy being a Coyote and enjoy your time in the library. Happy Reading!

I am so excited to be at West Creek Elementary! I'm from Kentucky, and new to the Clarksville area. This is my first year teaching first grade. However, I spent three years in Kentucky schools teaching second grade. I'm so pumped for the start of the school year! As a true Kentucky native, I love UK basketball. I don't yet have any children, but I do have a couple of pets that think they are children! I'm honored to be a part of the West Creek family. Let's have a fantastic school year!
