Program Director and Founder of iteachU.S. Diann Huber holds a Doctorate of Education in Curriculum and Instruction from The University of North Texas, a Master of Business Administration in Labor Relations from The University of North Texas and a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Business from Howard Payne University.
Huber began her career in education as a mathematics student teacher at Brownwood High School in Brownwood, TX. During her career in Flight Service Training for American Airlines, Huber was responsible for curriculum development, recurrent training and the facilitation of communication seminars. Huber later assumed roles in curriculum development and educational consulting for state and private educational institutions. As a private consultant, Huber partnered with The State Board of Education and other state educational institutions to develop presentation seminars, online teacher curriculum and training material, and to assist private schools and public school districts in staff development, course sequencing and curriculum coordination. In the College of Education at The University of North Texas, Huber served as teaching fellow, lecturer, and Professional Development School Coordinator, as well as the ExCET Coordinator.
As a leader in the education industry, Huber gained extensive experience in curriculum development and on-line instruction and expertise in state certification procedures. In January 2003, iteachU.S., formerly iteachTEXAS, was approved by the Texas State Board for Educator Certification as an alternative route to certification for teacher candidates in Texas. Huber effectively applied her years of experience in both education and business to the development of a new teacher preparation program that responded to the growing market for technological teaching devices. By the end of the third school year (05-06), iteachU.S. had become the one of largest providers of initially certified teachers in Texas, a distinction the program maintains as it continues to grow.
