Welcome to Miss Hansen's Class!

Hello! My name is Leah Hansen and I am so excited to be your child's second grade teacher this year! We are going to have a very fun year full of lots of new adventures and excitement! 


I grew up in Minnesota and have lived here all of my life. I attended the University of Minnesota for both my Bachelors and Masters in Elementary Education. I have been in Minneapolis Public Schools for the past few years, and this is my first year teaching second grade Bethune Community School! I am very excited to be here and cannot wait to get to know your child. I have one younger brother who I am very close to, and love spending time with my family. I love to travel, bake, and do lots of yoga! I am very active, and love incorporating lots of movement in activities in my classroom.


A Few Notes About Our Classroom:

  • We made an exciting change to our classroom, and we are now in Room 207!
  • Uniforms are require by the school/district. Please make sure that your child comes to school prepared.
  • A weekly newsletter will be sent home every Friday with your child. This has the spelling words for the next week. Please review and practice with your child daily.
  • Monday Reading Folders go home every Monday and should be returned by Friday. Please read the book with your child, sign their paper and send the folder and the book back with the student.
  • Students take home a weekly Wednesday homework packet. This is also due by Friday.


I am so excited for this new year and all of the exciting things we will be doing!
