About Me!

Welcome to my PATS class this year! My name is Dr. Hahn or Mrs. Hahn, you can call me either one. My  husband, Mark, and I have one son, who graduated from Florida State in 2017, and is currently a 2L law student at the University of Miami. 

I am a triple alumni of Florida State University, as I graduated from there three times! I have a Bachelor of Science (BS),  a Master of Science (MS), and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D), all in Science Education, with a minor in Biology. Obviously,  I love going to school and learning. I still take classes and special workshops when I can. I was a National Writing Workshop fellow last summer at the University of West Florida, and truly enjoyed it! 

I am certified in High school Biology, Middle School Science, Elementary Science, Gifted Education (K-12), and Elementary Education. My favorite grades to teach are the elementary grades! I started out teaching Middle School science, but quit for a few years when my son was born. When I returned to teaching, I decided to teach Gifted Resource. I have been teaching elementary Gifted resource for 14 years! I was in Gifted classes starting in 5th grade through high school, myself, and my son was in Gifted classes, so I feel I have special insights and strengths working with Gifted students. 

I love spending time with my family more than anything. I also love teaching, helping with animal rescue, playing tennis, traveling, going to the beach, reading with my book club, and watching Florida State football! Go Noles! And I pull for the Miami Hurricanes, except for when they play FSU! 

I have included some photos of myself and my family, including my pets for you to see. I have my own mini animal rescue with five cats, two dogs, one turtle, and three frogs! 

My Family...All Florida State fans!

Well, sort of, this was taken in London at Madame Tussauds wax museum last  summer!

Obviously this isn't really Albert Einstein! This was taken at Madame Tussauds wax museum in London a few summers ago.

Eclipse Video Taken in Smyrna, Tennessee

We have a very special video taken by one of our parents. Mr. Yeager, a pilot, captured this video in Smyrna, Tennessee, one of the locations along the Path of Totality where a total eclipse was visible. In the video, taken at 1:30 in the afternoon, you can see that it looks like a night sky. Very cool! 


Thank you, Mr. Yeager!
