Mrs. Madison Hanson



I am beginning my third year at Bellevue Elementary and it has gone by so fast! I have loved working at Bellevue Elementary and feel so grateful to be working with such amazing students and staff. Before coming to Bellevue, I was the Strings Director at Holy Spirit Catholic School in Pocatello, Idaho while completing my Music Education Degree at Idaho State University. My primary instrument is the violin, but I love to sing, play the ukulele and piano, and explore new instruments. My philosophy of education is that music is for everyone and every child can be creative and innovative. In my classes, I focus on students composing music, exploring contemporary music trends, and learning folk songs from all world cultures.

When I am not teaching, I can be found reading a book, plucking at an instrument, or spending time with my husband, Austin, and our three cats. I am grateful to be here in this district and am proud to be a Bellevue Bear!
