SRVHS history teacher wins Eukel award

Original post made by Rick Nelson, San Ramon Valley High School, on Nov 18, 2011

I'm hoping Danville Express will do a full story on this! Jesse Hansen, a history teacher at San Ramon Valley High, won a Warren W. Eukel Teacher Trust award, which includes a $10,000 award and an awards dinner last night at Diablo Country Club. He's a great teacher who deserves the honor - and deserves more recognition for his work for our students. So please write it up!

From what I hear, Mr. Hansen is well deserving of this. This should make all of us proud of our local public schools.

Mr. Hansen has been one of the greatest history teachers I have ever had. I could feel the passion he had for his subject. I hope that the administration will allow him to expand the SRV history department, as I think he is currently trying to get an Asian history class approved. He more than deserves this award; he is an excellent teacher.

Congratulations Mr. Hansen and thank you for your dedication to our kids. Your willingness to carve out a Model UN program and travel for the first time to New York with a bunch of wild and enthusiastic teenagers shows how committed you are to giving our kids an experience beyond the classroom walls and well beyond your job requirements.
