Author Biography - Anne M. Hanson

Anne Hanson is a doctor of educational leadership whose research study dealt with the psychological syndrome of burnout in the No Child Left Behind high-stakes testing workplace. A National Board Certified language arts teacher with over 20 years classroom experience, Hanson has worked as a peer evaluator, staff developer, and literacy coach for teachers and students. Serving as the foundation for all her workshops is the research-based understanding of the emotional well-being necessary to succeed in the workplace, whether school or business. Hanson's career-long advocacy for teachers and students has influenced the design of her workshops, which are as diverse as her audiences, who range from administrators and teachers to parents and students from K-12 to the college level. Besides the first edition of Write Brain Write, Anne is the author of Visual Writing; "Writing" in The Praeger Handbook of Learning and the Brain; Wanted: Teachers for National Board Certification; and Thin Veils, a novel about deadly dieting. Hanson's awards and recognitions include Arizona Teacher of the Year finalist; Scottsdale Middle School Teacher of the Year; Japan Fulbright Memorial Fund scholar; New York Council for the Humanities scholar; and Arizona State University Martin Luther King, Jr. Spirit Award.
