La Mariposa is pleased to introduce Mrs. Devon Hanks. Mrs. Hanks will be joining the 3rd Grade team this year. Before coming to LM she taught 3rd Grade in Bakersfield and has also worked in higher education with the California Reading and Literature Project at Cal Lutheran University. Newlywed, she enjoys spending time outdoors with her hubby of nine months. Her favorite place to visit in the summer in Zion National Park in Utah. In the winter, she loves to snowboard in Mammoth while her husband skis. While attending college she swam on the Cal State Bakersfield swim team and continues to swim in her free time. She also loves taking pictures and has even done a few weddings. For now, it’s just Devon and her husband, but there may be little puppy in their future. Let’s make sure we all give Mrs. Hanks a huge Tiger Welcome!
