• Hi! My name is Mandi Hanson and I will be your child's 7th Grade English Language Arts/Reading teacher. This will be my 16th year at Highland teaching 7th grade and I am also the Student Council Sponsor along with Ms. Dean. I graduated high school from Weatherford and then went on to graduate from the University of North Texas with a Bachelors of Science. I have been married for 15 years to my wonderful husband, Justin. We have two adorable kids, Brady (11) who will be in the 6th grade and Brooklynn (7) who will be in 2nd grade. Also, we have one furry child, Rally, who is a 3 year old Catahoula Leopard dog and is SUPER cute.  We are huge Texas Ranger fans as well.  In my free time I enjoy running, reading, being outdoors and spending time with family and friends.
