Although not a native of Southern Utah, Jason (Mr. Hansen) spent most of his life amongst the red rocks of Utah’s Dixie and caught the theater bug while attending Dixie High School in St George. He attended Dixie College on scholarship where he was actively involved in all aspects of the theater both on and off stage, earning his Associate of Arts degree with an emphasis in theater and the performing arts. Jason served an LDS Church Mission in Estonia for two years. Jason graduated from Southern Utah University with two bachelor’s degrees in Elementary Education, Special Education, and Social Sciences Secondary Education and later returned to school to complete a Master’s Degree in Education Administration also through Southern Utah University. Jason worked as a Teacher and Administrator for over 20 years in both the private and public sectors including Traditional District Schools, Charter Schools and Private Therapeutic Boarding Schools. Additionally, he operates a business as an independent consultant for the residential building industry. Jason has been married for over 20 years and has 5 children—all of whom access a home-based learning approach to their individualized education. Their family enjoys singing, performing, hiking and camping throughout Utah. Jason collaborates with the Education Specialists and with the curriculum development team developing additional resources and lessons for online learning during COVID. Additionally, Jason works closely with our Junior High students, mentoring them and helping them reach new academic heights.
