Ms. Christa Hanson

BIO

After earning a BA from Santa Clara University, an MA from the College of Notre Dame (now Notre de Namur University), and after spending thirty years in the Diocese of San Jose as an elementary school teacher and principal, Christa Hanson was excited to become the Executive Director of the Learning and Loving Education Center in 2012. She continues to have a passion for education and enjoys experiencing the immigrant women studying English and other subjects. Their motivation supplies the energy for her to seek out funding for the programs and to provide the best quality education for their empowerment. Christa even teaches two art classes at the Center. Education is the key to the women's success, as well as her own.
