Janet Hanson

Special Education Coordinator

I was born and raised in Provo, Utah. I graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in Elementary Education. Shortly thereafter I left the field to stay home full-time with my four children. In 2009 I started back to work and inadvertently ended up teaching special education and loving it! I decided to go back to school to get my Special Education teaching license and began teaching special education full-time; I later became a special education director at and entered the world of administration.

When I’m not working I love spending time at home with my family. I’m an avid reader and I love the outdoors. I can often be found reading a book outside on my porch, or by the pool; in the winter I’m snuggled up on the couch or taking a hot bath. I also love going to movies and out to eat with my family and friends.

I’m excited to be a part of the Ascent Team and to work with such a talented group of people.
