Mrs. Hanspal


I was born and raised in Kenosha and attended Forest Park as a child.  My parents have called me a professional student many times.  I enjoy learning and going back to school, to be the best teacher I can be.  I earned a biology degree from UW-Parkside in 2004. I worked for one year at the Medical College of Wisconsin, doing biological research. Then, in 2005, I began substitute teaching for KUSD and loved it.  In 2007, I earned an elementary/middle school certification from Carthage College and began teaching full time.  I earned my masters in education in Teacher Leadership in 2009, my reading license in 2010 and my ESL license in 2014.  Who knows what I will learn next?!
I was married in 2015 to my wonderful husband, Harry.  We welcomed our daughter, Grace, in July 2016.  She is truly amazing. She teaches me new things every day.  I love reading to her and making her laugh.  It warms my heart to make her happy.
In my free time, I enjoy walking my crazy dog, Billie, and reading.  I’m in a book club with my oldest friends, most of whom are teachers.  I have read hundreds of books, but my favorite is still From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E.L. Konigsburg.  I can’t wait to share it with Grace!
