Howdy! My name is Katelyn Hanson and I am the Instructional Technologist for Burkeville ISD. This is my 12th year in education. I graduated from Jasper High School in 2009 and from Stephen F. Austin State University with my Bachelor's of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies in 2012. While pursing my degree, I was a full time educational aide at Vista Academy and Few Primary in Jasper. I began my teaching career with New Caney ISD in 2012 as a third grade teacher. The following two years were spent as a Third Grade Dual Language teacher in the district.
In 2014, I met my husband. We were married in 2015 and a relocation was necessary. I moved to Beaumont and began working for Vidor ISD as a third grade teacher and then moved to fourth grade, where I spent the majority of my five years with the district.
In 2016, I made the decision to go back to college to pursue a Master's Degree from the great Texas A&M. I graduated with a Master's in Educational Technology in May of 2018. Whoop!
In 2020, we moved back home to Jasper and I took my dream job at Burkeville ISD. I am entering my second year as your Instructional Technologist. I absolutely love what I do and look forward to many years as a Burkeville Mustang!
My vision for our Technology Program is to assure that all members of our school community have access to a technology-rich learning environment. Our community of learners will apply innovative digital experiences that enhance and personalize learning while promoting collaborative, authentic, and mindful interactions. By integrating new and emerging technologies into best teaching and learning practices, we will ensure that our students are ready for college, career, and global citizenship. They will be educated to skillfully explore, evaluate, manage, and share information and outcomes. Together we will shape and connect our entire community of learners by providing equal access and opportunities.
“Technology will never replace great teachers, but in the hands of great teachers, it’s transformational.” – George Couros
