Kelsey Hansen, Kindergarten is where it is at for Ms Hansen. She graduated from Edwardsville High School and Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. Growing up in the southern part of Illinois would, of course, make her a St Louis Cardinals fan! Ms. Hansen loves to visit any place that is warm and sunny! She enjoys teaching because she loves how enthusiastic kids are and how they are so accepting of new things and ideas. An interesting fact about Ms. Hansen is that she sang (with the STL Children's Choirs) at the White House in 2006 and bungee jumped in New Zealand in 2008.
