Mrs. Diane Wiese
Welcome to Bess Maxwell School!
I am very excited to be a part of the Bess Maxwell team!
This is my 26th year in education and 11th year as an administrator. I have been a teacher/administrator at Joe Hamilton School, Margaret Keating School, Mountain School, Smith River School and now Bess Maxwell.
I was born and raised here in Crescent City and am very proud to call our community home. After graduating from Del Norte High School, I served for three years on active duty in the Army and six years in the Air National Guard.
We here at Bess Maxwell want families to be involved in the education of their children.
The Bess Maxwell staff are a warm and welcoming group of people and I look forward to working with you.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call the office at 464-0310.
Diane Wiese, Principal
