The best way for kindergartners to learn, teacher Kerry Hanson said, isn’t by sitting at a desk and putting pencil to paper.

After more than 20 years teaching young children, including 12 in her current position at Pleasant Acres Elementary School in Rantoul, Hanson said she has found the best way her students learn is through play.

“She spreads a love, joy and passion for learning to all of her kindergarten scholars,” Principal Samantha Sebestik said. “Ms. Hanson does an amazing job of teaching her students through play and builds strong relationships with her students and their families. Pleasant Acres is fortunate to have Kerry at our school as she is always helpful to her colleagues and brings a smile to everyone.”
