Matthew Hanson

3rd Grade teacher

Room: F6

Hello Neely Families!  My name is Matt Hanson and I am thrilled to be teaching third grade here at Neely Traditional Academy.  I’ve enjoyed being a teacher in the state of Arizona for the last 23 years, 20 of those years in the Gilbert Public School District.  Before coming to Neely, I taught second and third grade at Harris Elementary School also in Gilbert, and am very familiar with the primary curriculum and standards I will be teaching. I’m from Nebraska, but have called eight states my home growing up the son of an Air Force Colonel. Living in many of our country’s beautiful places and being the new student numerous times was a great experience as a child, but I am happy to call Arizona my home now.  I’m a University of Nebraska graduate with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and am an avid Nebraska football fan. GO BIG RED!!! I also have a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Northern Arizona University. I am married to a beautiful woman and we have four amazing kids, two sons and two daughters all within the ages of 5-13. Our family enjoys swimming, hiking, traveling to the mountains or the beach, and celebrating holidays, birthdays, and everything in between.

I am so excited to be a Neely Knight and a member of such a positive great school and family community. I look forward to working with each of you and your children here at Neely Traditional Academy.  If you see me on campus, please say hello, I look forward to meeting each of you!
