Alex Hanson

Hi! My name is Alex Hanson, and I am the 7/8 grade Special Education teacher! 

Education: I graduated from MNW in 2010. I graduated from Iowa Central Community College in 2015 with my Associate of Arts. From there, I attended Buena Vista University, graduating in December of 2017. I was lucky enough to student teach at MNW, and it was then I remembered how great it is to be a Cougar! I completed my 5-12 special education endorsement through Morningside College in December of 2019. 

Experience: During my last year of ICCC through the 2018 school year, I had the privilege of working in a special education room in Fort Dodge. It was there I discovered how much I loved working in special education, and I couldn't imagine doing anything else. 

Outside of School: I spend most of my time outside of school with my daughter (MNW Elementary student!) and my grandma. Together, we enjoy all things crafty, going on adventures, baking, and reading as many books as we can!
