Hanna was born in California and is currently studying Pediatric Psychology at UNM. She has a familial bond with teaching, as the daughter of an elementary school teacher. “My mom’s whole side of the family are teachers,” she said. “I’ve honestly worked with kids since I was little,” she explained, reflecting how she spent time from the age of eight in her mother’s kindergarten and first grade classes, reading to children and helping in the classroom.
Hanna is focused on her own classes now, but her enthusiasm was once part of the Cheer teams in her high school, where she experienced intense physical training for team stunts and performed at many school games.
We are delighted that Hanna has shared her vivacious spirit with the Night Owls this year!
Trevor is an engineer who is excited to be a support teacher here at Elevation, where he can express his passion for playful art and science. He brings his enthusiasm for experimenting with clay, magnets, and painting, along with explorations into the science of flight using paper airplanes. Recently, Trevor talked to children about how the eye works and compared its function with a camera lens.
Trevor grew up in Albuquerque and earned his degree in Mechanical Engineering from Arizona State College. He feeds his personal love for the outdoors through hiking in the foothills, and these days, his outdoor explorations include a group of Elevation friends. “A big part of me being here,” he explained, is imaginative play. “We close our eyes and imagine where we want to go.” Often he and the afterschool friends end up in the middle of the Arctic or even in the sewer system! And there’s always time to play monster…
