The Virginia Hansen Curriculum Room

Virginia HansenVirginia Hansen dedicated her life to being the best teacher possible for the children in her care, and as a cooperating teacher, she helped numerous student teachers hone their knowledge and skills in the classroom. The Virginia Hansen Endowment fund was established in the School of Education through the generosity of Mr. Victor Hansen. It is intended to honor the work and memory of Mrs. Virginia Hansen.  

Upon entering the Hansen Curriculum Room up on the 5th floor of the Kellogg Library (KEL 5106), you will notice that the materials in that room are arranged differently than in the rest of the library. Please watch this short video on how to find a book in the curriculum room: "How to Find a Book"
