Jim Hansen

Syracuse High School
Assistant Principal
Clearfield, Utah
I had a very happy childhood/adolesence growing up in good ol' Orem, UT. At 19 I served an LDS mission in the wonderful state of South Carolina. At 23, I met and married my beautiful wife Tamra. Four years later I graduated from UVSC (now UVU) with a degree in biology education. I landed a fantastic teaching job at West Point Junior High in 2004. For 12 years I had the pleasure of teaching Integrated science to 7th and 8th graders, as well as Biology and Earth Systems science to 9th graders. During that time I coached track and basketball, mentored National Academic League, and participated in many other extracurricular activities.  In 2016 I made the jump into administration. I spent two years at WPJH as an assistant principal. In 2020 I made the "big move" to high school and took a position as an assistant principal at Syracuse High School. I continue to work at SHS to this day and love it. I own a home in Clearfield, UT where Tamra and I are working on raising our 5 wonderful children. My hobbies include, golfing, woodworking, yard work and sitting.
