• A Retirement Message from the PCES Director, Diane Massa:

     

    It is with mixed emotions that I announce my retirement from Porter County Education Services. Someone wise, I don’t know whom, said that “when the time is right, you will know.” For me, the time is right.

     

    I began my career with PCES as a classroom teacher in 1975 and, over the next 45 years, embarked on a journey to serve students with disabilities as a supervisor, district director, assistant director and, finally, director. Many challenges were faced during those years and many of those challenges overcome. I hope I have been able to contribute to the lives of students in Porter County in a positive way.

     

    I have enjoyed working with the PCES Board, the PCES administrators and staff, and the community—all of whom are fiercely and unwaveringly dedicated to the students we serve. I am confident that each of you will carry on the tradition of excellence for which PCES is known and for which PCES will always strive.

     

    It has truly been an honor.

     

    Diane
