Degrees and Certifications:
Hello, my name is James Hannah, and I am your child's Early Childhood Special Education Teacher. This is my second year as lead ECSE teacher at Grove Park, and my 4th year here on the instructional staff. I am paired with Shawna Petty, who is beginning her 5th year as an instructional paraprofessional. Together we run an organized and very hands-on classroom that focuses on improving language, living skills, gross and fine motor skills and other pre-academic skills to help prepare your child for a successful academic career and future.
Here's a little about me............. first and foremost, I am still a child at heart. I love to play and participate in the same things the children are doing, because I have so much fun watching them learn and play. I absolutely love music, and love to play music in my classroom. I love music so much that it is impossible for me to decide on a favorite song. I also love movies, but for the same reason as music, I find it impossible to decide on a favorite. My undergraduate degree is in English from Virginia Commonwealth University, so I am an avid reader. I do not have a favorite book, although I do have two favorite characters: Hannibal Lecter and Robert Langdon. I love sports and love to watch pro-basketball and college football (and I still have my card collection from childhood). I am also an avid comic book collector, and have a huge collection of old Spider-man and X-men comic books and am always looking to expand my collection.
