Faculty Spotlight

Nitza Diaz- ESE Support Facilitator

I started working with Pasco County Schools as an ESOL paraprofessional at LOLHS back in 1998. Throughout my time with Pasco schools I worked as a Bookkeeper/Secretary, Migrant Advocate (itinerant), Discipline Assistant, etc. I have assisted in many other areas while in some of these positions: Data Entry, Registration, Clinic Assistant, and the sort. I became a teacher in 2006 after many of my administrators kept on insisting and encouraging me to get my certification. Though my degree is actually in business management and accounting, I went ahead with the advice, and took the needed tests to get certified as a teacher. I then completed the Alternative Teaching Program offered by our school district. It has been 12 years now since i started this teaching journey, and it has been a very rewarding career.

All my formal education was done in Puerto Rico. When I first moved out of my homeland I actually moved from there to Germany as we were a military family. Working with the education system is something that I see not only as a mean to provide an income, but as a service to others and a way to help students and families. I share a special bond with ESE and ESOL students because I have experienced with my own family the additional stressors and challenges that these group of individuals face.

My family and I love the outdoors. So whenever we have the opportunity we like to go to the beach, hiking, bike riding, kayaking, etc. We also love the TN mountains.

I love to read, yet I am not a book reader. I enjoy to read specific articles in my areas of interest: psychology, health sciences, technology, mechanics, engineering, etc. I enjoy to do research job and analyze information to find trends, etc.

I do not watch much TV nor do I go to the movies often, but if you find me watching TV it most likely be Dateline.

Ms. Dallaire-Science

This will be my second year teaching. I was lucky enough to be an inaugural staff member at CCMHS for my first year. I graduated from Tennessee State University in Nashville, majoring in chemistry, with a minor in biology. After I graduated I worked for a forensic toxicology lab for four years as a chemist, mass spectrometrist, and scientist. I have been married for 10 years, and my husband’s job is what brought us to Florida. We have three boys, James (8), Jackson (5), and Jordan (2). Once we moved, I decided it was the perfect time for a career change and I could not be happier with my decision. My hobbies include photography, crafting, beach days, and adventures with my boys.

Mr. Mahoney- Social Studies

Hello, my name is Timothy Mahoney and I am excited to join the Coyote family. I have been teaching for 22 years, both middle school and high school. I recently relocated from New Jersey to Florida. I have taught AP US History and economics, US History I and II, School Law, World Geography andGlobal Political Economics among other subjects. I have been an adjunct professor of education at Saint Peter's University for 19 years. I hold a BS in economics from Boston College, a MBA from Fordham University, a MA in education from Saint Peter's University and I hold a certificate in special education from New Jersey City University. I enjoy sports-I play softball, I have coached track and I enjoy collecting antiques, movies and good food.

Actionable Items

Submit a Faculty or Student Howlout!

Faculty Howlouts will drive our selections for Staff Member of the Week. Each week we will announce all of our HS and MS Coyote staff members of the week! These staff members will have their names announced on the intercom on Friday. At the end of the quarter the Staff Members of the Week will be invited to a special luncheon in their honor! We look forward to receiving numerous staff shout outs so we have many to select from each week!”


Student Howlouts: At the end of the week these students will be invited down to the flag pole in the center of the courtyard where we will have a Coyote Flag to be raised on Friday. These students will get the honor of raising the flag each Friday, and will have their names announced on the intercom! At the end of the quarter we will have a breakfast for all of our Students of the Week and their parents.
