Principal Hankerson


My name is Rachel Hankerson and I am so excited to be the Principal of Hahn Elementary School for the 2018-2019 school year. I grew up in Sonoma County, and I love this community.  I started my teaching career at Hahn Elementary School as an Education Specialist in 2010. I then moved to the District Office, where I was a Program Specialist, last year I was lucky enough to come back to Hahn as a part time Co-Principal, while still being a part-time Program Specialist.  I feel so lucky to now be at Hahn full time.
I completed my Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Arts at San Francisco State University, where I also played soccer as a Gator.  I then got my Mild/Moderate Teaching Credential at Sonoma State University.  Later, I went back to SSU where I earned my Administrative Credential and a Master’s in Educational Administration with an emphasis in curriculum and instruction.
I love working with students and being back at a school site has been a dream.  I truly believe that Hahn is the best place to be.  Every day I look forward to seeing our staff, families and students.  I am committed to making sure that we give all students the foundation they need for their future, while also making school a place everyone wants to be.  If we haven't met, I'd love to meet you, please introduce yourself to me when you see me in front of the school or on the playground. My door is always open, feel free to stop in and say hello.
