Ms. Diane Hess



I am into my 13th year of teaching and am very excited to be returning to my roots in Journalism. I have a degree from Texas A&M University in Journalism and worked in newspaper production, editing and graphic design for over 25 years before entering the field of education. I now feel I have come full circle back to Journalism in order to be able to teach the writers, editors and photographers of tomorrow.

I have heard so many awesome things about the LEE students, campus and staff that I can't wait to get going! Watch for great things in the future.
