I write this in a state of humility and pride. Humility because I am Alyssa Hansens' mother. I, myself have done nothing to help my daughter achieve this prestigious honor for which she is being nominated for as Life Changer of the Year.
Alyssa was brought into this world with an amazing perseverance and the ability to love others. Her father and I watched in amazement as her characteristics began to bloom in front of our eyes. We simply opened the doors to some of the best pre-school's, kindergarten, primary school's and college's that were meant for her personality and watched her grow into the extraordinary woman that she is today.
Her ability to learn and share that passion and love causes me to look at her with pride. That achievement belongs to her alone.
She genuinely loves her job and each child that comes to her, as she teaches them from her soul. They are her passion. I am very blessed to call her my daughter.
I have only met Alyssa once, but we’ve been communicating and encouraging each other via social media for a while now. When I finally met her in person, she was so genuine in making me feel like I had known her my whole life. She truly is someone that makes everybody feel like a somebody. I’m a much better person, and pushing to be one every single day, now that I know Alyssa!
Alyssa is one of my very best friends. Being an educator myself, I am more than confident when I say she is an incredible teacher, and person. Her dedication to every student is undeniable, and when we get together to talk about teaching, her love for every student could not be more apparent. She is a person who always looks for the positives, and is there to support everyone no matter what she is going through herself. I am truly blessed to have her in my life, and she is more than deserving of this award.
I had Mrs. Hansen last year and she will do anything and work ask hard as ever and never stop untill she accomplishes her goal. She is very caring about the people around her and I know she’ll do great.
As one of her former students, she was a great teacher who was incredibly kind and understanding. She’s always willing to help you out no matter what!
she is really nice and friendly. she was always there for any student that needed help with school. she had a smile on her face everyday during school. she is the teacher that you would want to be best friends with. the one you can tell someone anything. she always had a positive attitude!! she was the best!
She was one of the most selfless people I have ever met. She always helped to the best of her ability no matter what happened. She is very deserving!
Mrs. Hansen was always a teacher that could offer support to anyone at any time when I attended Old Quarry. She is such an inspiring person that continues to change the lives of her friends and family
I also had Mrs. Bauer help me out during the high school math program. She was always able to alleviate my stress and help out with whatever I needed!
She was the nicest teacher and always encouraged her students. She defines selflessness and deserves this award.
When I was in 8th grade doing honors math at the high school she gladly came in and took me and my class from the library on our free days off math and brought us to her classroom. There she would help us with any math questions we had and did whatever she good to help us succeed. She didn’t need to do that, take us in, yet she did and made what was supposed to be an intense math course pretty enjoyable and easy. Mrs. Bauer has a huge heart and just wants to see everyone succeed and be the best they can.
I've known Alyssa Hansen since she was a small child.. She has always been an energetic, dedicated and motivated young woman. She has overcome many obstacles to become sucha remarkable young woman; teaching her students and caring about them both inside and outside of her classroom. She teaches, coaches, encourages and stays involved in the lives of her students. I am honored to praise her and recommend her as a Lifechanger of the year!
I am Alyssa’s Sister-in-law and I’ve been a proud witness to many weekends and weeknights she dedicates to teaching and coaching her students. She is a Lupus warrior, a marathon runner, and advocate for teen mental health. She is authentic and genuine with every person she crosses paths with. I couldn’t think of a more perfect person for this honor!!
Alyssa is definitely one of a kind! She’s an amazing teacher, a fabulous friend, and an undeniably influential leader! She is the most deserving person for this award!
What a great energy she brings to the middle school! It's been wonderful to work with Alyssa the past few years, you can not miss her positive approach with her students, colleagues, meetings, extra curriculars and more!
THE DEFINITION OF SELFLESS!!!! No one is more deserving of this award than her.
Alyssa Hansen is passionate about teaching and about being there for her students. She is a great person, and a wonderful teacher. We love you Alyssa.
Alyssa is definitely passionate when it comes to educating middle school students. I have observed her interacting with students in a positive and caring manner, and her classroom is a safe and consistent environment. As her colleague, I know that she will spend time with me as we collaborate to improve lessons. Alyssa is a Lifechanger at Old Quarry Middle School.
What an honor to be selected for this award by a former student! You are clearly heeding the call to make a difference!
We are so glad you are part of our school family.
Alyssa is in a wonderful family of teachers and they all do incredible work with kids!
Mrs. Hansen not only has a way of working with students that are intentional, targeted, and supportive. Her approach allows students to think critically and problem solves through an investigative approach! Students and staff alike are influenced by her practice as an educator.
Alyssa has one of the best hearts of anyone I have ever met. One of this gal's greatest characteristics is her ability to set stretch goals for herself and follow each one through to the end. Having known Alyssa for over a decade, I attest that drive for success has only grown. Her motivation and tenacity are truly inspiring. She is the person you want in your circle because she also builds you up. I am grateful to have Alyssa in my life and I proud to call her my friend.
I am one of the secretaries at OQ. I love watching Alyssa with the students. She always stops what she is doing and gives the student the time needed. We could be in the middle of something and Alyssa will put her needs aside to see what the student is seeking. Alyssa took on some coaching and she always has the students/players come first. She makes being at OQ fun! Way to go Alyssa.
Way to go! So proud of the work you do!
Alyssa extended an incredibly warm welcome to me as I joined the Old Quarry teaching team last year. She was always happy to help throughout the year as needed.
Mrs. Hansen was my son, Michael’s, math teacher her first year at Old Quarry. She turned math into a fun, hands-on and great learning experience for her classes. She had a live stream of her class so us parents could see what our children were doing during a day in class. She has also coached my daughters in softball and basketball! She has made a difference in so many of these middle schoolers lives. She always has a welcoming smile and open door to help the kids. I highly recommend her for the Lifechanger of the Year award!
As my 7th grade team member, I strongly recommend Alyssa for the LifeChanger of the Year Award. She has overcome so much adversity this past year and is an exemplary teacher to work with. :)
