Ms. Kiersten Hansen

Welcome! Bienvenidos! I have been part of the JPS family for nearly 10 years. I have worked with English language learners in nearly every grade level in this district. I also teach adult English language learners at Jamestown Community College. Currently, I teach English language learners in grades 2-4 at Love Elementary and I love my job. While studying for my Bachelor's degree in Spanish, I lived in Cuernavaca Mexico. It was this experience, living and studying in another country, that motivated me to help others in a similar situation. When I returned to WNY, I earned my Masters degree in the TESOL program at SUNY Fredonia. It has been my mission for the past decade, to help those students that have travelled here to live with family or pursue a change in life. I love helping these children navigate and thrive in a new and sometimes confusing environment.
