Katie Hansen Named Teacher of the Year

Our own Katie Hansen, a fifth-grade teacher at the Annapolis Lower School, was named the 2022 Independent Schools Teacher of the Year at the 36th annual Excellence in Education Awards, held April 26, 2022, at the Live! Event Center, Arundel Mills. Principal Elizabeth Williams and Eric Hansen, Katie’s husband and director of student development at the Upper School were in attendance to celebrate the moment. Congratulations, Mrs. Hansen. Well done!

The Excellence in Education Awards is a partnership collaboration between Anne Arundel County Public Schools and the 21st Century Education Foundation. Earlier this year, the organizers summoned a few of Mrs. Hansen's students to talk about their daily experience as students in Mrs. Hansen's classroom.
