Jane A. Hansen (Inducted 2006)
I arrived at the University of Virginia as a professor in 2000, and now am also the Director of the Central Virginia Writing Project, a National Writing Project site. Previously, I served as professor at the University of New Hampshire for ten years where I also spent much time on cross-country skis. Before that, I received my PhD at the University of Minnesota, about 120 miles up the road from my family farm. In between, I taught in sites ranging from Bromley Mission, Liberia, Peace Corps to Hanahau'oli School, Honolulu to Agassiz Elementary, Minneapolis to Midland Park, New Jersey. Throughout, I find I have somehow lived the life of a writer - someone who strives to create her own voice.
