A school of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod

Preparing Students for Success in High School, College and Beyond

Mr. Joe Hansa
Seventh & Eighth Grade

Mr. Hansa has been teaching 7th and 8th grade at Grace Lutheran School since 2004. However, he and his family have been part of the Grace family for much longer. Mr. Hansa grew up in the Little Village neighborhood and attended school at Grace from pre-school until 8th grade. His mother also attended Grace as a child and was married at Grace Lutheran Church. He will be the first to tell you that returning as a teacher is a much different experience, but has its rewards. 

Mr. Hansa is a graduate of Concordia University, Chicago where he earned a bachelor's degree in secondary biological education. In December of 2011, Mr. Hansa graduated from Concordia with his Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. Mr. Hansa enjoys the small class size, the close student interaction and the opportunity for class trips that Grace provides.
