Mrs. Melissa Hanson

I have been teaching in the Genesee School District since 1999.  I was initially hired as the school’s reading specialist and for 11 years I worked in our Title I program providing reading instruction and interventions to students who struggled with the reading process.  In 2010 I began teaching kindergarten and have had the time of my life – I love teaching this age group! I have a Master’s Degree in elementary education with a reading emphasis and a passion for early literacy.  My husband Jason and I have two daughters, one in high school and one in college, and we’ve lived in Genesee for almost 20 years. (Jason teaches social studies in the high school and helps coach high school girls’ basketball.)
