Mr. Jeff Dietz

Hello, and welcome to my class website. My name is Jeff Dietz, and I will be your child's teacher this year. I am very excited to be a part of your child's second grade learning journey.

This year marks my ninth as a teacher at Eagle Creek Elementary School. I spent my first seven years here as a kindergarten teacher. I am eager to now begin my second year as a member of the 2nd grade team here at Eagle Creek. My philosophy as an educator can be summed up by the phrase "kids don't care how much you know until they know how much you care". I strive to build meaningful connections with all of my students while fostering a welcoming and inclusive learning environment.

When away from school, I love to spend time with my family. My wife Nicole and I have a four-year-old son named Owen and a one-year-old daughter named Finley. We also have a golden retriever named Lola. I am an avid golfer and I play as often as I can.

I look forward to meeting you at Connect and Assess and working together to help your child have a positive experience in second grade.
