Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Hannah Banks

My name is Hannah Banks, and I have had the privilege of serving a few different communities and my experiences from each one has brought me to where I am today. I am from San Diego, CA and I have a Bachelor of Arts from UC: Santa Cruz as well as a Master of Arts in Education Foundations from CalState: Los Angeles. I have taught in East Hollywood and at our own Montclair Elementary. This last school year, I was the TSA at REACH Academy in East Oakland. I have always considered myself a lifelong learner and find a lot of joy in reading, discovering, color-coding, and reflecting. I am a very organized individual and I appreciate constructive feedback from those around me. My goal is to grow into the best leader I can be for the Joaquin Miller Elementary community. On a personal note, I have recently married this summer and am in the process of changing my last name. My maiden name is Bossenger, so you will see my email address below as Hannah Bossenger, however I will be using my married name for everything else. 


I view education as a lifelong process, so one of my priorities is to learn a lot more about Joaquin Miller’s individuality this year and in the years to come. Most significantly, I carry the belief that all decisions must put students first and that it takes a village. I look forward to combining my experience, openness to new ideas, and child-centered perspective to serve our students.
