My name is Amy Hanson, I currently live in Fairbanks Alaska, which is where I was born and raised. I graduated in 2009 from UAF with a degree in photo journalism and a minor in art. Just over a year ago I decided to go back to school to get my K-12 art license along with an M.Ed.
I did a practicum last fall at West Valley High School and an internship in the spring with the Art Center, which is the K-6 Fairbanks school district’s roaming art teachers.
I was fortunate to be hired on as a full time art teacher just a few weeks ago at West Valley. There I teach ceramics, jewelry and Native Arts. This is the last class I need to get my license. Currently I am teaching under a provisional license.
Other than teaching my interests include: baking, traveling, photography, shopping for antiques, and working out (did my first half marathon in August).
Looking forward to working with everyone in this class 🙂
