A Reluctant Good-bye to a Very Special Person!

An Amazing Man Who Will Not Be Forgotten!
Last week, we learned our assistant principal, Mr. Eric Hansen will be leaving us this week to move to an assistant principal position in Charleston, SC.  We all know this move will bring great opportunity for Mr. Hansen and his family, but we are still sad to loose such a wonderful leader who made such an impact on our school.  What has Mr. Hansen meant to you?  Has he helped you succeed in school?  Do you have a funny story or favorite memory of Mr. Hansen.  Please share your thoughts and ideas below, and let's send Mr. Hansen off with a lot of wonderful thoughts and a ton of love from his Wellford family!


  1. Mr. Hansen,

    You inspire others to be their best through your positive encouragement and your ability to genuinely care about the lives and circumstances of the people you work with. Thank you for your constant support in the classroom, and for seeing the best in me! I will greatly miss you, but hope for the best for your family as you take on this exciting new adventure. Our class will look forward to Skyping with you and please feel free to visit us anytime on our blog! 

    Lots of well wishes!

    Miss Tripp

  2. Mr. Hansen,
