Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! I am Susan Hanson and I am excited to be here at Pleasant Grove Elementary as a 5th grade teacher. I have been a 5th grade teacher for the majority of my 15 year career in education. Besides being a classroom teacher, I have been a mathematics academic coach, mathematics interventionist and a track-out academy teacher. However, the 5th grade classroom has my heart. I earned my bachelor's degree in elementary education from Auburn University and my master’s degree in mathematics from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I am happily married to my husband, Mark. We have two sons, Liam (16) and Ewan (5). In addition to being a fifth grade teacher, I am a certified Jazzercise instructor and teach several classes a week in local studios. I have also recently taken up knitting. I am always looking for ways to enhance my teaching, especially with technology. I love incorporating different tech strategies and devices in the classroom. I am looking forward to meeting you and helping facilitate the growth of your child’s education.
