Diana Cabot is a Student Government Association advisor, Latinos in Action advisor aerobics instructor and now, Hollywood Hills Teacher of the Year.

And she has a passion for her students. “It is not about me, it is about the kids,” said Cabot. “It was exciting to win this honor. What makes it special is that all the people who work at Hollywood Hills voted on this award. Teachers, custodians, cafeteria personnel and others voted for me. This really felt good.”

Cabot has a big personality and her students love her. During a Student Government Association class, the students were doing their assignments with enthusiasm and they love to talk with Cabot. She came to Florida shortly after the September 11  attacks to make a fresh start in a new area.

“My goal is to teach leadership skills to help my students move forward,” she said.
