Diane Talton

My name is Mrs. Diane Talton and I have worked in Harnett County Schools for 16 years.  I spent eight years teaching elementary students at Erwin Elementary School in Grades 3 and 5.  I then transitioned to Harnett Central Middle School where I taught 6th and 7th grade ELA and 6th grade Math and Social Studies.  After eight years at the middle school level, I decided to take on a larger leadership role where I could help students and teachers.  
I grew up in Coats and attended the original Coats Elementary School.  After 8th grade I attended Triton High School.  I currently live in Benson with my husband and daughter, but my heart belongs to Harnett County Schools' students, staff, and communities.  
My goal is to be a strong instructional leader for teachers and students.  I believe in Harnett County Schools and I know our school staff, parents, students, and communities will work together to provide the best educational experience possible for every student.
