Mr. David Hansen is one of our most important history teachers here at Springvile Junior High. He not only teaches history to seventh graders, but he also teaches something he thinks is very important: civic rights and character.
Mr. Hansen has been teaching at Springville Junior High for 22 years. In that amount of time, his students have really grown attached to him. “He is awesome and fun!” said Katie Carter, one of Mr. Hansen’s seventh grade students. The reason he has stayed so long is “it’s the time where most of the changes occur for a student. It’s a crucial age where students start to decide what they are going to be later in life, and I like to be a part of that.” Mr. Hansen likes to “help nudge students in the right direction.” He wants them to be a very big success later in life.
According to Mr. Hansen, education is very important; it helps you build a strong foundation for the rest of your life. He did a couple things before teaching but then realized “everybody’s got their gift, teaching is mine.” He started teaching at Mountainview High School in Orem then he moved over to our school and what a difference he has made!
