Welcome to Mrs. Hanson's 6th grade social studies class. I'm looking forward to a fabulous year!
Our Classroom Mission
We, the students of Mrs. Hanson's Social Studies classes, will work hard and challenge ourselves to learn about our world and prepare for 7th grade.
In order to do this, we will listen carefully, complete our work on time, be respectful, and always try our best!
Be Honest. Be Responsible. Be Yourself.

Can you find me?
Hello! My name is Gwyn Hanson and I have been teaching in North Carolina for twelve years. In 1998 I received a BA in Psychology and Sociology from UNC Charlotte. After working in social services for a short time, I returned to UNCC and earned a K-6 Teaching Certificate. I've taught dance, social studies, math, and language arts.
I moved to the Charlotte area 23 years ago from El Cajon, California, a suburb of San Diego. My husband's job brought me to beautiful North Carolina.
My husband and I share a home with Madison, our JRT. We do get an occasional visit from our 22 year old daughter, Jessica, who now lives in Florida.
My hobbies include: swimming, planting flowers, reading, Boogie-boarding, and traveling.
