My name is Tracy Hanson. I am a mother of one and grandmother of 3. I have been in the field of education for over 35 years. Over the years I taught elementary multi-grade, worked with elementary medically fragile, multi-handicapped children,was an early intervention education specialist, out -of-district case manager and elementary special education teacher and more recently developed and ran an alternative program for middle school children.
From these experiences, I developed Mistacres School, a private K-8 school in New Hampshire. I moved from text books and packaged virtual programs to Open Educational Resources. June, 2012 I founded Next Generation Global Education, a non-profit organization that is networking OER to strengthen their presence in education while collaborating with educators from around the world to design the foundation of a Universal Library for Learning. I also work with children in Africa who are successfully sharing learning experiences with New Hampshire and beyond.
I hold a bachelor’s degree in Elementary and Special Education, a Master’s in Curriculum Development and a Master’s in Administration.
I love to watch the sunrises and sunsets whether it be over the mountains or the ocean, being outside with the wildlife either in the gazebo or the garden, spending time listening, watching and learning from and with my grandchildren, networking with like-mind educators interested in making educational change.
