Mr. Hansen lets us express our individuality. He says that no question is a wrong question. It just means you are thinking. He tells us that even if something is hard, we should try, because he only cares to see that we put a lot of effort into our work. I ( Dijana Masic) believe in myself more because of Mr. Hansen. He is such a great teacher.

I had Mr. Hansen three years ago now, and I still remember in great detail some of the things that we did in his class. Even though it was only a 6th grade science classroom, Mr. Hansen treated it like a true laboratory. Not all of the topics were the most interesting in the world, but Mr. Hansen would always present them, even if they were boring, in a very creative, intriguing, and fun way. Thank you Mr. Hansen for being such a great teacher.

Mr. Hansen has always been one of my favorite teachers. He has always been the one who would lend a hand to help you in class or if you needed a little encouragement. Every time I go to Linden now I make sure to visit him. He always has that same great smile on his face and the genuine passion for teaching is just unbelievable.

Mr. Hansen is the BEST Science teacher EVER! He spends hours and hours after school and on the weekends posting fun and interesting videos for the kids which reference various discoveries and topics in the world of science. This is all above and beyond his regular work. He has even lead groups of parents and kids on weekend science excursions — on his own time, for no pay. He loves kids, he loves teaching, and he loves science. This comes across to the students in a big way. We feel lucky that all of our kids have had him as their 6th grade science teacher.

I live with Mike (Mr. Hansen) and see how much time and effort he puts into his science lessons. He is always reading books, articles, and taking courses to research ideas on how to teach science in a way to make it interesting for his students. He pushes them and treats the 6th graders like high school or college students at times. He has a true passion for his work and dedicates tremendous effort to the betterment of his students.
