San Diego County’s “Teachers of the Year”

Teachers are heroes. They inspire, they mentor, they counsel. Quantum Academy math teacher Christine Hansen takes things a step further. She sometimes dresses up, wears a Fortnite character costume or uses mullet hairstyles to demonstrate a math concept. It’s that dedication to her students that earned her the illustrious honor of being named one of San Diego County’s “Teachers of the Year”. So today, I proclaimed November 19th "Christine Hansen Day” in San Diego County.

The Escondido USD teacher and 4 others will now be considered for CA Teacher of the Year. Congratulations Christine, Don Dumas, Hilda Martinez, Nicole Miller and Kelly Tulloch!
