Miss Diane Rankin

Hi and welcome!

While we are working from home, check out these music websites to explore and expand your knowledge! Check out the Helpful Resources link to find engaging music games and lessons. 

My name is Miss Rankin. This will be my second full year teaching music at Bessemer and I am super excited! I have previously taught four years of K-12 music (North Dakota) and one year in PreK-7 music (Virginia). My classes have included general music, guitar ensembles, piano labs, and beginning band.

I was born and raised in Bucks County, PA and completed my college experiences in Illinois. I graduated with a Bachelor of Music in Music Education from Olivet Nazarene University and a Masters of Music in Instrumental Music Education from VanderCook College of Music. I enjoy playing flute with the Greensboro Community Band, reading, video games, and adventuring with my crazy fur babies!
