Welcome to 4th grade at Vaughan Elementary! I am Paula Hansen, and I am so excited to be your child's teacher this year. This is my 17th year as an educator, working in 4th and 5th grades. I have a M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction, with a Science emphasis, and enjoy creating engaging instruction for students. I particularly enjoy teaching Science and Social Studies, and thrilled to be teaching these content areas at Vaughan. I also have a music background, often playing for weddings and other events, and enjoy embedding music when creating student learning opportunities.
My husband and I were born in Dallas, and have three wonderful grown sons, along with three precious grandchildren, and a dog named Jack. We love spending time with family, hiking national parks, cruising, and working outside in the garden.
Please reach out at any time if you have questions, wish to discuss anything, or just share a celebration about your child. I look forward to a fantastic year with your child as we collaborate and learn.
