Mrs. Stephanie Hansen
I grew up in mid-Missouri and attended the University of Central Missouri to earn my Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. In 2011, I began my career teaching first grade in Jefferson City School District. During this time, I also earned my Master's degree in Elementary Administration from William Woods University. In the summer of 2013, I moved to Kansas City and continued teaching first grade in Excelsior Springs. In 2016, my husband and I moved to Smithville. We loved the small-town feel, the school district, and all the opportunities to be outside and enjoy nature. I joined the Warrior family this year, and I'm so excited to be here!
My philosophy of teaching is to offer exciting, meaningful learning experiences for students through engaging instruction, hands-on activities, and building strong relationships with both students and parents.
