Hansen Named Science Teacher of the Year

The Cincinnati Section of the American Chemical Society named Mason High School’s Aimee Hansen as its Science Teacher of the Year.

Whether it’s her famous "Mole Day" activities, Functional Group modeling Lab, or Sodium Polyacrylate experiments, Hansen knows how to make Chemistry exciting to learn. A dedicated teacher who makes chemistry relevant to her students through her enthusiasm, innovative teaching methods, and interesting inquiry-based experiments, Hansen joined the MHS faculty in 2002 and teaches general and AP Chemistry. Through activities like Science Olympiad and Math and Science Night, Hansen has expanded the opportunities for students to enrich their learning beyond the classroom.

“Aimee Hansen was born to teach. She has had a significant positive impact on the science and chemistry curriculum at Mason. Beyond the funky lab coats she wears and the awe-inspiring experiments and demonstrations she executes, she manages to motivate students who struggle with science and she helps the high achieving student excel in the science world,” noted MHS Principal Mindy McCarty Stewart.
