Humans of West: Stephanie Hansen

“When I do anything, I think of how I feel in some of those situations, like what would I want my teacher to do. So I just teach based on how I want to be taught.”

Stephanie Hansen is a favorite among her students. Her secret?  

“Just care about people. I have this freakish empathy… I put myself in people’s shoes and how I would feel if I was in their shoes… so I think if I didn’t think that way, I don’t think I’d be the teacher that I am, a super-empathetic teacher.”
