Elayna Hanson

Kindergarten Teacher

My name is Elayna Hanson and I am a kindergarten teacher at Saint Cecilia School. I absolutely love the energy, enthusiasm and silliness that comes with teaching kindergarten!

I was born and raised in the Ames area and have been a member of Saint Cecilia parish for most of my life.

My education includes degrees in Art History and Elementary Education. I have worked in the field of education for the last 15 years and have worked with preschool through college students.

I’m married with two children; Will is an 8th grader at Ames Middle School and Claira is a 1st grader at Saint Cecilia. My husband, Heath, is a Lieutenant with the Ames Police Department. I can’t forget about my sweet dog, Frank, who is a 3 year-old labradoodle. He’s kind of naughty!

In my free time, I enjoy running, spending time outdoors and traveling. My husband and I recently went to Banff, Canada where we hiked and enjoyed the gorgeous scenery!
