About Mrs. Hanson

This is my 14th year of teaching! Time has flown by! I love being a Southside Panther and my goal is to help you reach your goals! You can be good at math if you work hard. Nothing says you can’t. I believe you can have the best year of math you have ever had if you will start fresh and try hard! I will work with you as much as I can to help you succeed.

I was not a strong math student in high school.  I did not enjoy it nor did I understand it until I had a very special teacher spend some time helping me see that I COULD do it.  So now it is my life's passion to do the very same thing for others.  I will believe in you and not give up on you unless you give up on yourself.  Everyone was not created to be a genius, but we can all understand mathematics and succeed at it if we continually believe in our own ability!!

I have a desire to be a life-long learner.  I am striving to invoke the same desire in my students.  Once the fire of learning has been ignited, nothing can put it out!

I am a 2003 graduate of Ashville High School and a life-long resident of Shoal Creek Valley in Ashville, just across the river.  I attended Gadsden State Community College and Jacksonville State University.  I earned a Bachelor's degree in 2007 from JSU in Secondary Mathematics.  I have earned a Master's degree in Mathematics Education from the University of West Alabama. 

I have been married for 11 years and have a 7-year-old son. My husband was in an accident in 2016 that changed all of our lives forever. However, we serve a mighty BIG God and miracles have taken place since then. God is good!
