Diane Ballentine

Driver Education Instructor at HCC

Diane has been a licensed and certified driver education instructor since 2003. She tells me that she has all the patience in the world….and sometimes needs it!!!  Diane works as a Special Ed I.A. at Winter Street Elementary, and is a mother of 3, grandmother of two (but don’t look for gray hair and a cane!).  She loves reading, baseball, and using her sarcasm to lighten up any behind the wheel lesson.
