My name is Jeanne Hansen, this is my 11th year working for Saint Paul Public Schools. I have had the opportunity to work in a variety of settings including elementary and high school. I have spent the majority of my career working with middle school students and find them to be truly a blessing. I love getting to see them mature and make connections with their own learning.
As a speech language pathologist I get the chance to work with a diverse group of learners. This is one reason I became a speech langauge pathologist-the diversity! I can work with individuals from the time they are born and then until they are no longer with us depending on the setting. I have choosen to go into the school setting because I feel the needs of the learners are important and the skills I can teach them will be used through out their entire life, not just middle school.
The photo I have included on my homepage is my favorite place to visit, the North Shore. I love how in one weekend you can be visiting the North Shore and it is calm and peaceful. The next day the waves could be crashing into the shores. It reminds me that things change and to be ready for the unexpected.
