Welcome to the Crew!

Dear Student, Parents, and Guardians,                                          


            Greetings! Welcome to the beginning of a fun-filled learning experience at Anthony Elementary School! I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you all, if you please.

            This is my twelfth year of teaching, though my second at Anthony.   I am thrilled to be a part of a team of professionals that continues to put our children first. Before joining the Anthony team, I taught in the Kansas City, Kansas, Kaw Valley, Fort Leavenworth, and Spring Hill School Districts. I enjoy working with children – they have a way of making my day.

            I graduated from UMKC with my Bachelor’s degree and completed my Masters at the University of St. Mary in 2012. I have been a member of the leading professional organizations for teachers and have hosted, presented, and attended many professional conferences to liven up ways of learning old concepts. I plan to bring many of the things I have learned into the classroom. There is still much to be learned and I hope to pass on my love for learning to your child.

            You can extend your child’s learning through our classroom website . I will use REMIND to keep all guardians aware of school functions and important information about our classroom. Please sign up as soon as possible!!! I will also be in contact by phone or e-mail, as needed, so please ensure I have good phone numbers and an e-mail on file for you at all times. Likewise, feel free to contact me at any time if you have any questions, comments, or concerns. I truly believe in teamwork! Again, welcome to the new school year! I truly look forward to a wonderful year full of learning with you and your child!



Mrs. Melynda Hanson, MA Ed.
