Erica Hansen

Erica Hansen has taught 7th and 8th graders at Lyons for the past 4 years and will teach 12th grade in 2017-2018. She primarily teaches ELA and Social Studies with a focus on reading and writing strategies, but also co-teaches in Math and Science. She's worked on the middle school musicals teaching students how to sing on productions like The Lion King, Jr. and Aladdin, Jr.! 

She earned her Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and her Masters in Education from Long Island University in Brooklyn. Before teaching, she worked with teens for 7 years in a Behavioral Treatment Residence and as the Director of Youth Services in North Reading, Massachusetts. 

Erica enjoys singing classical, R&B, jazz, and a cappella. She loves the beach, especially Crane Beach in Ipswich, MA (where she was born and raised) to take a run and jump in the freezing cold water!
