Ms Hansen Biography

Joyce Hansen-Schwartz, AP Literature and 12th Grade. Focusing on writing in her undergraduate work at Binghamton University, Ms. Hansen-Schwartz always knew she wanted to do something with words. She spent a few years writing for a construction trade journal and freelanced at a local paper in Syracuse, NY. It wasn't long before she realized teaching was a good fit, and she completed her Master's at SUNY Cortland. After teaching four years upstate, she moved to Brooklyn in 2015 and has been enjoying the city life ever since. When she's not teaching, Ms. Hansen-Schwartz enjoys traveling and caring for her fish. She's currently writing a screen play that she hopes to finish by the summer.
