Kia Ora,

My name is Jason Hanson and I am the teacher of Room 14 in the Rangahau team. I am currently in my third year teaching at Berkley and have loved supporting our students in taking up the challenge and becoming the best learner they can be.

I was born in Rotorua, not so far from here. I moved to Hamilton to complete my degree at the University of Waikato. I found my passion for teaching through my experience working at a holiday programme with students aged 5 through to 13. I really enjoyed working with this age group which helped me in my decision to pursue teaching as my career. I try to participate in all things that interest me even if it does mean leaving my comfort zone at times.

Basketball is a large part of my life. I coach/manage Berkley basketball teams during competition terms and like to watch professional basketball in my spare time.

As a teacher I work hard to see students achieve, overcome challenges, work outside their comfort zone and do all this while enjoying themselves. Seeing students achieve and work towards their goals are one of the many reasons I really enjoy teaching.
