• Mrs. Hansel Email: jshansel@avon-schools.org Phone:317-544-5900 ext. 5984 Subject/Grade: 6th grade English/Language Arts Hello!  I graduated from IUPUI in 2006 for Elementary Education and then added Middle School E/LA to my licensing in 2011.  I received my master's degree from Kaplan University in Reading and Writing Curriculum grades 6-12 in 2012.  Upon graduating from IUPUI in 2006, I worked in Pike Township for 7 years teaching 6th grade Reading and came to AIS West in 2013.   I am a huge advocate of the Reader's and Writer's Workshop philosophy of choice in reading and writing.  I was very fortunate to receive training from the Teacher's College at Columbia University in NYC for this method of teaching in 2011. I have three daughters, Cayce (4th grade), Cassidy (3 years), and Josie (1 year) and my husband of 14 years, Jeff Hansel, teaches PE/Health at Avon Middle School South. Our family proudly lives in Avon!
