Mrs. Jo Hanselman
Special Education Teacher
Hello and welcome!! I am excited to be at Ankeny High School. For the past 13 year, I have been teaching at Northview Middle School. Many of my former students are now my current roster students...whom I have missed. I will be teaching and co-teaching in science, literacy, world or work, and writing classes.
Before coming Ankeny, I taught in the Saydel School District and at Woodward Resource Center. I graduated from Manning High School, University of Northern Iowa, and Drake University. I hold many certifications and endorsements as well as a National Board Certification. This will be my 35 year as an educator ... woohoo and loving it!!
In my off-school life, I am a wife, mother of 4, grandmother of 1, reader, gardener, walker, bicyclist, and life-long learner. I love to jeep in the mountains or just spend time talking with friends.
