Mrs. Hansen

Hello, I am Mrs. Cathrine Hansen and I am proud to be teaching sixth grade World History at Deerlake Middle School.

I am entering my 28th year of being an educator in Leon County Schools.  I taught 5th grade at Woodville Elementary for 6 years and 6th grade at Deerlake Middle School for 18 years.  I enjoyed serving as the Assistant Principal at SAIL High School for three years and as Assistant Principal at Pineview for one year. 

I did my undergraduate and post graduate studies at The Florida State University. I have a B.A. in Psychology, a M.S. in Elementary Education, and I received my Certification in Educational Administration in 2012. 

My wonderful husband Scott Hansen works at the Leon County Schools District Offices as the Director of  Secondary Schools and Student Activities.  We have just celebrated 33 years of marriage!  We are the proud parents of a blue-eyed, red-headed boy, Andrew Hansen, who is a graduate of FSU and is living and working in the Tampa/St.Pete area.  

My favorite things to do outside of school are enjoying time with my  family, reading, traveling,and experiencing different cultures.  I consider myself to be a lifelong learner.  I am so very happy to be teaching at Deerlake Middle School.  It is my home!  I am looking forward to helping Deerlake’s students on their journeys to learning.
