Betsy Hansen

Ms. Hansen
  • I have the privilege of teaching both English classes and the IB Career Programme's Personal and Professional Skills course.  I believe that reading and writing are more than just practical skills.  I believe that reading and writing can actually transform the way we think and interact with the world around us. I love to find new and creative ways to bring literary and non-literary text to my courses and integrate technology in fun and useful ways.

    I graduated from Metropolitan State University with a degree in English and attended Hamline University for graduate work in Reading Instruction. 

    For fun, I attend as many live music events as I can, enjoy plays and musicals, listen to true crime podcasts, and try to get outdoors whenever the weather permits.
