Ms. Diane Niemczyk

I have been a proud RCPS parent since 2003.  My daughter, Molly, a 2020 Georgia Tech graduate, was the 2016 Rockdale Magnet School Valedictorian.  My basketball-loving son, Ethan, is a sophomore at Salem.  I've been a jewelry and handbag designer since 1997, a Realtor, business owner, and teacher.  Without a doubt, the best investment of my time has been spent with my children.
