Peder Hansen

My biggest desire in education is to empower students and teachers to achieve their goals and impact the world around them. Educators and students who use learning as a tool to change their own situations and impact the world around them are my biggest heroes. These leaders regularly overcome narratives of inability, disadvantage, and failure to prove naysayers wrong. I have been in education for 17 years, and each day my collection of stories grows with proof that we are changing the world. These stories need to be shared.

About my Innovation Fellows project:

My goal with this project is to uplift those stories and empower students and teachers by crafting celebrations, conversations, and partnerships that will amplify and accelerate success in Summit School District.

When I’m not working, you will find me…

On a bike in the beautiful mountains where I live.

Three words my friends would use to describe me are…

Reflective, responsive, and always up for something new.

My favorite quote is…

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act but a habit.” ­—Will Durant
