Sonja Hansen Smith Huntington Learning Center

Valley’s Hansen-Smith Recognized For Inspiring Student Learning

Each month, students at Huntington Learning Center in West Des Moines are asked to nominate a teacher who has inspired their own learning and helped form the person they are today.  Valley High School social studies teacher Sonja Hansen-Smith was recently chosen for this honor on Wednesday, May 29.

The student who nominated Hansen-Smith said:  “She is very good at connecting with students and always gives multiple opportunities to learn.”

Congratulations to Mrs. Hansen-Smith, and all of the teachers at West Des Moines Community Schools (WDMCS), who go above and beyond the call of duty to help form the next generation of learners.
