Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Hannah Lankford


This school year will be my 7th year as a teacher. I graduated from ASU with my degree in Special Education and Early Childhood. I have worked at Vista Peak for all 7 years of teaching. I love this school and the students I have the pleasure of meeting. Over the years, I have taught 6th-8th grade, but this year I get to focus on 7th-8th grade. This age group is my favorite because they always keep me on my toes and laughing. I enjoy doing many hands on projects with the students and social skill games/ activities to keep the students actively engaged throughout the day. In the classroom, we focus on behavior choices and coping strategies with the goal of having our students ready to be successful outside of the classroom environment. However, academics are still very important and students are expected to complete their work in order to meet the curriculum.

When I am not teaching, I am hanging out with my husband and my 5-year old son. I also enjoy painting, reading, and playing Roller Derby for AZDD.
